The Ultimate Cauliflower Cheese
Whether you love it or hate it, we can all agree that cauliflower cheese is a staple of any Christmas dinner. Deliciously creamy and cheesy, this dish is a dream come true for us here at Love Cheese. Whilst your typical cauliflower sauce may only require a handful of cheese, naturally, we had to go the extra mile with this recipe! Enjoy a large helping of different cheeses, ranging from cheddar, Parmesan, and even brie, is your mouth watering yet?
For this triple cheese sauce we had to go with the best of the best.
First up we’ve got Black Bomber, a traditional style mature cheddar that is packed with rich flavours and a lovely smooth texture that’s ideal for a sauce like cauliflower cheese.
Next, we have Parmesan, and we’ve gone for the classic Parmigiano Reggiano, a 30 month aged cheese that’s rich in flavour with a stunning crumbly texture.
Finally, we’ve got Taleggio, a lovely fruity and mild brie that is great for melting. This soft cheese has been well aged to give the cheese a nice salty taste with a tang which is sure to bring some excitement to your sauce!
