Wednesday Q&A – 6/9/21

Welcome to the place where your two bloggers ask each other one question each week. We hope you enjoy them as your learn a bit more about us – sometimes we even learn more about each other!

Ray’s question to Karen:

Q: I think we’ve all heard people say “mashed cauliflower tastes just like mashed potatoes!” Total truth, or utter nonsense?

A: It’s nonsense! When I was a child and lived in England, we had a cooked hot lunch at school every day. That is where I first remember falling in love with cauliflower. It was served frequently alongside mashed potatoes! They are definitely not the same. As you know, potatoes are my favorite food and when I asked the nice ladies for two scoops of potatoes, I had to prove to them I could finish before they would give me more. Before the end of the school year I was up to four scoops!

Karen’s Question to Ray:

Q: The other night I was sitting and watching Crazy Delicious on Netflix. Carla Hall of Top Chef and The Chew fame is one of the “Food Gods”. During a “reinvention of pizza” round she came right out and said, “The cauliflower pizza? I hate it!” Naturally, I thought about you. Tell me what that cauliflower crust tastes like. Is it like pizza dough? Cauliflower? Or perhaps potatoes?

A: Yes, we have made a few in our house as you know. There is one brand that sells just the crust so you can make you own and we do enjoy it from time to time. While I would call it a pizza like dish for sure, it isn’t exactly pizza either. Without the awesome dough that makes a true pizza crust, how can it be? It doesn’t taste like pizza dough or potatoes and interestingly enough, it doesn’t really taste like cauliflower to me either. Overall, it doesn’t have a lot of flavor and I would describe the texture as being more biscuit like in nature rather that having that nice chewy quality that regular pizza dough has.
