The Food Programme on BBC Radio 4 are running a short series of programmes about chefs and their key ingredients. Listen to Yotam and Sami talk about cauliflowers.
wonderful show, fantastic attitude to choosing veg, ie not being caught up in organic or air miles just quality, and of course food in general. I am making the cauliflower with dill, capers and cherry tomatoes for my dinner tonight. I also look forward to visiting the restaurant, never took much notice of the recipes in the Guardian, glad you have got Hugh's slot, I will take more notice now (after listening to the radio programme)
Just got the cook book (the recommendation of a friend after a fab Ottolenghi salad made a huge impression at a recent friends & family picnic).
Was then listening to the show on Radio 4 when I realized that finding Tahini in Northampton might prove difficult. Any suggestions?
Dickie, tahini is widely available. Many supermarkets sell it. If you can't fine it try this website: www.herbsgardenshealth.com
I got the cookbook recently and it's awesome. I've made around 5 dishes so far and am keen to make as many as I can pull off. The last dish I made was the chargrilled cauliflower with capers, dill and tomatoes and I happened to have had a romanesco cauliflower delivered in my veg box. I'd never used this kind of cauliflower before but it was amazing in this dish! I think that because it is so highly textured it hangs onto the dressing, which is itself a pretty fantastic element of the dish in its own right. It looked and tasted beautiful. I haven't listened to the cauliflower slot yet but I'll check it out.
Thanks Louise. Yes, this should work very well.
The Cauliflower and cumin fritters, with lime yoghurt in the cookbook are a dream to make, and taste amazing!
