C is for Cauliflower
Freddie has chosen the next vegetable victim - the cauliflower. The cauliflower, in Freddie's eyes, benefits hugely from not being a green vegetable. We started promptly with Cauliflower Cheese made with some tangy-tasting cheese from the Orkneys. There is such confidence about our family mealtimes these days - the nervousness that used to linger around the kitchen table when Freddie refused anything new has dissipated. His wary eye hasn't left him but its not as strong as it used to be. We toasted him last night as he tucked into his cauliflower cheese. He looked proud and like a statesman uttered the immortal words, " Well I have my 5000 visitors from across the world to think of." Priceless.
His sister Alexandra is becoming territorial about the kitchen - not wanting to be overshadowed by her brother she has decided to bake for Britain. I see the potential for a culinary war breaking out in this household.
Freddie needs more cauliflower recipes please...
