How to make it

Cheddar Cauliflower cheese is one of those dishes that is so versatile – it works great as a side vegetable for any main meal, as a replacement carb or even as a snack. It works well with any strong cheddar, but we like to use Smoked Godminster Cheddar for an extra kick of flavour.

  1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets – you can include the tops of the leaves too if you wish
  2. Parboil in salted water for around 8 minutes
  3. drain and place in an oven proof dish
  4. In a separate pan, melt the butter
  5. Take off the heat and add the flour – this will make a paste (roux) once fully mixed
  6. Place back on a medium heat and begin adding milk slowly, ensuring each time you add the milk it’s absorbed by the paste
  7. Stir constantly throughout to ensure there are no lumps
  8. Add the mustard
  9. Season with black pepper
  10. Add most of the grated Smoked Godminster Cheddar
  11. Stir until well mixed
  12. pour over the cauliflower
  13. Sprinkle a handful of the grated cheese over the top
  14. Grill for 10-15 mins under a medium grill, or until browning and bubbling

Cheddar Cauliflower Cheese is great served with roasts, but is also an ideal accompaniment to these recipes:

Rôti de veau Orloff is a classic French dish that works great as an alternative roast option. Filled with deliciously tangy Le Gruyere and salty bacon and served on a platter of vegetables, this looks and tastes the part.

Pork loin is one of the easiest cuts of meat to cook for dinner as it is juicy and tender. This recipe uses Berkswell for its sweet and dryish taste.
