Notes

If you find a cauliflower at the farmers’ market in
season (fall is peak season, beginning in October)
you’ll find that its natural sweetness is much more
readily apparent than in the plastic-wrapped ones
found at the supermarket.
Romanesco, a centuries-old vegetable that has
been reappearing at farmers’ markets lately, is
a hybrid of cauliflower and broccoli. It has a seagreen color and its shape resembles something out
of a science fiction movie, with florets of spiraling
domes. You can substitute 1 head of
romanesco for the cauliflower in this
recipe. It steams in roughly the same
amount of time as cauliflower.
