What a wonderful dish -- we love cauliflower and this is a great recipe to utilize it. I detoured just a touch as I had some leftover ham from Thanksgiving -- so I used it up vs. the ham hock. Otherwise made as directed -- so rich and delicious, just what you need on a chilly day as it is nice and hearty. We served this dish for lunch - it's great with a side salad; although it could be served as a side dish as well. Made for PRMR, December, 2013.
