I'm a brazilian executive that loves cooking as a hobby, and the decision to take those classes was to elevate my cooking abilities to a higher level. Now, first step is done.

Love the unusual combination. Will for sure try to cook this dish. Am familiar with the steak, look forward to adding this topping.

This workbook is not the right PDF for this Dish. It is red wine poached egg.

Any suggestion on what I could replace the butter with to get the same richness and depth? :)

I was very curious about this recipe for simple 2 reasons: 1. Always found the cauliflower a very "boring" veg; 2. As an italian chef with an italian cooking background i would have never imagined on my own to combine together in the same dish olives, cumin (from Harissa), lemon, orange, mint and mushrooms. So among all recipes this is the first one i tried... and let me say: Absolutely Fantastic! Chef Ramsay is a Genius.


There is no denying the love and ingenuity put into the creation of this dish. The result is a work of art. I suggested I might make it for dinner last week. But my teen would rather eat any type of animal, even if he had to hunt, butcher, and prepare it over an open fire in the artic tundra in subzero weather...without gloves. So what is next on the menu Chef Ramsey?

This was a really useful exercise in thorough preparation. We prepped all the ingredients for each of the 3 recipes and it was so simple then to bring the whole thing together. The result was sublime! Definitely will be done again...and again!

Turned out delicious. I love veggies but my husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy. He LOVED it and said I could make it anytime. He forged for the mushrooms which were yellow and black chanterelles vs portobellos. I made my own Harissa powder since I didn’t have any. It was outstanding. Thank you Chef Ramsey.

cauliflower is a very firm, plain veggie, rarely has its own flavour. the same as eggplant. but the difference is the texture of eggplant is spongy and can be melt into the puree, but cauliflower is like a root veggie. it wouldn't be tasty by absorbing flavour until you chop it small. the mushroom is also more or less plain but with its own fragrant .these two vegies both need to be elevated by other powerful ingredients. but obviously the olive is not powerful enough to take this responsibility. olive is a very "side" flavour. I can't believe these two will go well by olive

We made this for the first time for our neighbor, who has Crohn's disease and has limited dietary options at most dinner parties...he LOVED it. Ate nearly two ginormous pieces of the cauliflower plus took the rest with him home. Pretty big compliment -- thank you Gordan Ramsay!


I love cauliflower and never have cooked it this way - now I know I can and I will! One thing I would like to see is how he cuts up his dishes and serves them for a family meal. I'd like to see his method for division of servings and how they hold their 'look' after portions are divided.
