This once scorned vegetable (we blame school dinners) has had a truly amazing comeback and is on dinner tables and menus everywhere. It's tremendous versatility, subtle nutty flavour and mildly sweet undertones make it a clear winner. our cauliflowers come leaves on, which have a flavour somewhere between cauliflower and sweet cabbage, enjoy these boiled for a few minutes or roasted with olive oil.
Cauliflower belongs to the group of cruciferous vegetables. They are named that way because they have flowers that consist of four petals which resemble a cross.
(Cauliflower crops are harvested in the UK in autumn through to winter - outside these months they are sourced from Europe)
Store in the fridge with any outer leaves intact. Best eaten within 1-2 days, although can last up to a week.
We know you love supporting local, independent producers and knowing exactly where your food comes from. We also know that there are some extra bits and pieces that you really need to make that order as complete as possible. Being too rigid about local sourcing, doesn't actually help our suppliers, as it means we're sending our customers elsewhere to complete their shop. We always seek to be as transparent as possible - so you can make an informed decision about what you want to buy. So we’re delighted to have teamed up with Alex from the esteemed organic wholesaler Langridge Organic. Langridge work with specialist growers from around the UK, Europe & the rest of the world operating a local buying policy: "We always source from the closest possible producer providing they meet with the quality standards our customers expect.” In time with more local customers, farmers will be able to grow a broader local range - ok, maybe not bananas, but more varieties at more times of the year, all produced closer to you.Find out more
