    English_Rose's Note:

    Cheese was often made in individual farmhouses and was combined with cauliflowers grown either in the fields or in the kitchen garden. Adding a few ounces of whisky adds an extra flavour to this popular dish.

      I really enjoyed this different way of preparing cauliflower (I usually make it Rita's way, roasted with rosemary and 16 cloves of garlic). However, this was a nice departure and good for special occasions when calories don't count (when is that? Ha! ha!). Anyway, I thought the cheese sauce was very good. I used portabella for the mushrooms and all walnuts for the mixed nuts, as that is what I had on hand. This made a nice side for grilled beef ribs. Thanks! Made for ZWT6.

      Finally a recipe where I didn't have to be concerned about only liking barely-cooked mushrooms! I really did chop them into very small pieces & followed the recipe right on down, & for me it was an most unusual, though very tasty, way of dressing up a vegetable that we do enjoy often, & now I have a wonderful new way of preparing it, thanks to you!
