This broccoli-Esque Brassica is currently having its culinary moment as chefs and home cooks are discovering more creative ways to enjoy it. How can you pass it up with its sweet, mild, and slightly nutty flavor?
The renewed interest in cauliflower can also be attributed to the many beautiful colors and shapes they can be found in. In addition to the common white variety, cauliflower is also available in light green, orange, and purple colors. Supposedly, different colors provide slightly different flavors. Your farmers' markets have varieties that are hard to find elsewhere, such as the Romanesco variety with its pointy crown and lovely pale green color.
