“Look for small heads of cauliflower (1lb-1 1/2 lbs). If the heads are too large, cut the head down through the stem end. As far as the spices go, use whatever you have on hand, whatever is in season, or whatever you have lingering in the garden. Being flexible is the key. BH&G Magazine, 12/2008 edition.”
