Cauliflower cheese, a most British dish that is reputed to have been introduced into the UK via Cyprus, the home of the cauliflower (Can this be true? Is there cauliflower in traditional Indian cooking?). It's very flexible, easy to make and an absolutely brilliant supper meal. If you want to make a main course you can add potatoes and bacon.
Not to put to fine a point on it but once you have your basic technique resolved you can do any number of wonderful things with your cauliflower cheese. It's good enough to stand as the centerpiece of a main course of a meal and you can add a wide range of ingredients to compliment it. I even have a friend who makes this dish as part of his Burns Night celebration together with Haggis, Tatties and Nips. I've also seen it used as an accompaniment to faggots in gravy, it made for a wonderful rich sauce and was the perfect 'after pub' supper.
Once you have familiarized yourself with a recipe please do experiment, this is a dish that lends itself to your own individual quirks. There are great many variations on the simple and traditional offering we have here, if you find (or create) one that's particularly good let us know.
