Cauliflower Bourguignon is one of those vibrant colourful dishes. The Pearl onions and mushrooms. complement the cauliflower. I serve this dish with mash; this soaks up the liquid. I find the burgundy wine with the herbs is welcomed intoxication.  Here I wrap the bouquet in leek leaves which give an authentic feel to this dish.

It is just a clove – the longer term is clove of India – that’s all. Apologies for causing any confusion, Chessie.
