My husband recently confessed to me that he doesn't like cauliflower. What?! Almost 12 years of marriage and I didn't know this. What is he going to think when I put this on the table for dinner tomorrow night? I like pushing the boundaries just a little bit and am proud to say he will now eat mushrooms and tomatoes. Crazy times, I know. As small as these achievements are I will take my daring where I can get it- Kids kick my ass.
When I was 20 yrs old, it would never have occurred to me that I would find a vegetable this outstanding or that I would get pleasure from convincing my husband (married no way - not for me, ever!) that mushrooms are not slimy toadstools and tomatoes are more than projectiles.
I love how a seemingly random object has order and structure, and that it makes sense. Called Romanesco cauliflower or broccoli, originally hails from Italy and can be prepared similarly as one would cook a cauliflower. Now, what, am I going to do with it?
