1 large head of cauliflower
4 - 6 TB best quality white truffle butter you can afford (the best brands list ingredients as only truffles, butter & salt)
3 - 5 TB cream
salt to taste
Bring a pot of water to a boil, fit with a steamer.
Carve the green leaves and the stem from the head of cauliflower, discard. Break the head into small to medium-small florets. Add the florets to the steamer, cover, steam the cauliflower till it is meltingly tender.
Drain the water. Now add the tender florets to the pot (no flame). Mash the cauliflower well with a potato masher. Alternatively, you can bust out your potato ricer and say that you used it at least once this year. When the cauliflower is mashed, begin with 4 tablespoons of the truffle butter and 3 tablespoons of the cream and salt. Stir this about, check for seasoning. Depending on the size of your cauliflower head, stop here, or add the rest of the truffle butter and cream. Adjust salt.
I write. I cook. I want A&M's job! Just kidding. No, I'm not. I used to be a professional chef, and while I no longer want to be in a professional kitchen, I could never stop cooking. How cliche that I write and cook, nonetheless, the two marry quite happily and blogging fulfills both of those passions for me with an immediacy that I crave. I would love some day to do it full-time.
I have two blogs at the moment, and I'm developing a third.
