Last night I had a craving for cauliflower — I checked through all my recipes and the only one that sounded satisfying was this one. We made a few changes to it and it turned out like I thought it would! Sheer comfort food!!! I am sorry if I have confused you with my ingredient mature cheddar cheese - I have been told to add the word vintage to it so it would be better understood. (In my mind - one is sharp & the other sharper.)
