It’s time to talk about the really important things, the ones that make a difference. Obviously, I’m referring to the correct way to make cauliflower cheese. More food crimes have been committed in the name of cauliflower cheese than almost any other dish. So let me give you the rules: the cauliflower must be undercooked before being bathed in the sauce and it must be in a single large piece. Failure to do this will result in a mush you could masticate without the aid of teeth. Finally there must be a generous hand on both the cheese and the mustard in the sauce. Got it? Good.
