I was wandering around Venice a few years ago and came across a fruttivendolo boat moored on the edge of a canal. Fruttivendolo  means greengrocer in Italian and it is one of my favourite Italian words. It just seems to roll off the tongue nicely. I stopped to admire all the shiny aubergines, tomatoes courgettes and all the other vegetables that Italians use so much. To my surprise nestled there in the middle of them was a cauliflower in a bag which proclaimed its origins. Marshalls of Butterwick in deepest darkest Lincolnshire not far from where I live!! This tickled me and I now try to look out for Italian recipes that use cauliflower. I have not tried one yet  but I am sure there are some.DSCI0813
