For Lord Dalrymple’s sake, I hope his top looked nothing like the lumpy, greasy, flat mess sitting on my (undercooked) cauliflower last night. Recipes from Sarah Raven’s Garden Cookbook don’t normally lead me astray, so I am going to guess it was me who made the mess. Halving the recipe, substituting milk for cream and Gouda cheese for cheddar, browning the butter. Whatever it was that caused the problem, it wasn’t even solved by unleashing the power of the KitchenAid on the separated, blobby mess I found in my pan when things were supposed to have “the consistency of double cream”. Ugh. Thank goodness for apple sauce and late-night snacking on salted peanuts, is all I can say.
