My Italian friend, who is a trained chef, is looking to run an Italian cooking course, covering a range of recipes from basic pasta, gnocci to fish and meat dishes, she is happy to adapt complexity depending on participants.
I must admit I struggle with flour types, what to use for pasta, bread, dolce, and I see so many different ingredients in the shops that I wouldn?t know what or how to incorporate into dishes.
She is thinking of a trial run, end Sept / Oct. If anyone is interested please PM me
Thankyou

I like the Cavolfiori Romano. the pointy green one. I often make cauliflower Cheese ( which admittedly looks a bit odd with green pointy bits in it ) or cauliflower and chickpea curry, which in retrospect seems a bit of a waste seeing as how it has such a nice flavour, so I just use it steamed as a vegetable as well. Talking of coloured vegetables Oasi in Lanciano often has the original purple carrots, but the one that always makes me smile, is the choice between red or blonde oranges at the village market.

Yes, I think so, it’s subtle but the white ones are sweeter than the green ones. The purple ones are such a shock to the eye, it’s a surprise they taste of cauliflower 😂

One of my favoured way of having cauliflower is to part steam it then dip each of the florets in egg then flour and deep fry them until golden. They are nice hot of cold. That is how they do them in campania.

Yes, we are. Is there much difference in flavour? Probably not.  ;D

Boiled / steamed cauliflower was never one of my favourites but roasted it's vastly better. Roasted cauliflower risotto is one of my winter staples.  :P

We have a little fruttivendolo Van, which comes to the village, this morning I asked for a cauliflower and was asked which colour I wanted, Bianco, giallo, verde o viola? I remember when a cauliflower was a cauliflower, no choice of colour. Aren’t we lucky to have such wonderful choice of vegetables?
