Odorless Cauliflower Cooking (Trucs of The Trade) Frank Ball & Arlene Feltman, Editors
Tuesday, December 1, 2009
Among the special pleasures of home-cooked food is the delightful smell that emanates from the kitchen. Unless it's cauliflower. Then everyone wants to eat out. For as good as cauliflower can taste on the plate, it can really smell up a house while it's cooking. Antoine Bouterin's truc, which also works with broccoli and cabbage, is like a breath of fresh air. Tear a slice of bread into small pieces and add it to the pot with the cauliflower and its cooking liquid. The bread will absorb and contain the cooking odor.
