I’ve heard a lot about this so I decided to make my own version and it was so great I made two batches of it! This recipe is vegan but I really enjoyed topping mine with parmesan cheese after. If you want to keep it vegan fresh herbs like basil or rosemary, freshly roasted garlic cloves (just cut off top, cover with tin foil & bake on 400 for 25 minutes), pan roasted nuts, caramelized onions or even a dash of spicy chili oil would all be fantastic on top of this!
You can either boil the cauliflower or steam it (stove-top or microwave), you can even buy the frozen microwaveable cauliflower to make it super easy!
If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

Siento en mi algo extraño El cansancio de esperar me dejo sin nada al fin. Y al caer tan profundo Solo queda al respirar el recuerdo del ayer. Que puedo hacer si en la soledad El silencio es la última verdad Y cada paso es un adiós, cada segundo es el final ¿Quien cree en mi, quien piensa en mi? Bailando solo, sin una señal de fe No hay mil modos si dejaste de creer en mi. Siento en mi las cenizas Revivir, revivir. Y en la soledad me pregunte ¿Quien cree en mi, quien piensa en mi?
