Delicious! I changed it up a bit... used home grown onions instead of shallots and half the cream. Added about a tablespoon and a half of Worcester and a 1/2 cup of white wine. Served with some crusty bread and parmesan cheese on top! Even the boyfriend (who kept saying "but I don't like cauliflower") ate his whole bowl!
