Long Island Cauliflower

October 3rd, 2010 by Chef Bill

Fall is a good time of the year to purchase and enjoy Cauliflower!

Good-quality cauliflower will have white or slightly off-white heads that are firm with no space between the curds. The leaves should be fresh and green. There is no quality difference between large and small heads. Avoid cauliflower that is soft or wilting, has ivory to light brown coloring or that has small dark spots on the curds. Keep cold and humid and use as soon as possible.

Below is a recipe my clients enjoy!
