It was so pretty, I used it as a centerpiece in the middle of my table at my cooking class with some parsley to jazz it up. These are my two clients, Janice and Evie, enjoying the Vegetable Cooking Class. When I was done admiring my cauliflower centerpiece for the the day, I made some cauliflower millet mash and ate it.
