"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add flour and stir constantly until light brown. NOW GET READY! It is time to add the milk and you need to be ready to stir quickly as it is added. Add one cup first stir swiftly. The stirring is very important as this is what keeps the lumps out of your gravy. As the mixture begins to thicken slowly add the rest of your milk. The longer it cooks the thicker it will get. (To a point, of course!) Add salt and pepper to taste.
I remember this as being one of my main cooking lessons when I was young. Mom kept telling me how important it was to stir, stir, stir if I wanted to make Grandma proud!
