I made this for Christmas and never reviewed after watching Ina make this on a show! It's very easy to assemble (I cheated and used frozen cauliflower) and had wonderful raves! It has already been requested for Easter! Will be keeping this in the rotation in our house!

I have the Barefoot in Paris cookbook, which is awesome. I made this dish to serve with pork chops and green beans last week. It was really good. So glad to see you posted the recipe on 'Zaar because I'm tracking all the recipes I make this year in a cookbook I named "Made it in 2010." Now I don't have to submit the recipe myself! Thanks!

After seeing Ina make this on the show I wanted to try it myself. I enjoyed this recipe, it was elegant and complimentary to any other side dish.

Very good dish. I added a bay leaf and 4/5 black peppercorns to the milk for additional flavor, otherwise, I followed the recipe to a T. Juenessa thank you for sharing.

I've always loved barefoot contessa's recipes. We loved this so much. I halved the recipe and i worked out very well.

Wow! This tasted wonderful. I had on hand Asiago and Manchego cheeses, so I substituted those for the Parmesan and Gruyere. I did not drizzle the last 2 Tbs of butter over the top, but I don't really think I missed anything. This was rich and delicious. Thanks for the recipe! :)

I used Swiss cheese instead of the gruyere because that is what I had on hand. The gratin was delicious. I very much recommend this recipe.

Juenessa this was so good, really the only change I made was I added in 2 tablespoons fresh garlic (gotta have the garlic!) and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper to the roux, I am going to give this a try using broccoli..I just love the Contessa's recipes! thanks for sharing hon!....Kitten

The cauliflower was perfectly cooked and then dressed with a wonderful cheese sauce, what more could you ask for. We really enjoyed this tender dish, it made the cauliflower shine. Thanks so much for sharing.

What a great way to dress up cauliflower! And that comes from one who enjoys eating it raw! I'm a firm believer in steaming vegetables, so that's what I did in step #2, but other than that, the recipe was followed, & the result was a very well-received dish! I really liked the taste of the nutmeg & cheese with the cauliflower! Many thanks!
