Originally known in sixteenth-century England as a Cyprus colewart, then coleflower, the cauliflower has survived even the British habit of baking it with a cheese sauce. I know people who make this good, old-fashioned favourite for their dinner. I mean, for their entire dinner. I guess that’s what boarding school does for you. Consider steaming it whole, and serving completely bathed in sauce.
