A special yet nice-and-easy cauliflower recipe with brown butter, hazelnuts, sage and pears adapted from chef Andrew Carmellini.
Note: I first published this recipe and the following text on Serious Eats in January, 2011. I’ve updated the photos and tweaked the recipe. Hope you love it!
If this Cauliflower Recipe with Brown Butter, Pear, Sage, and Hazelnuts sounds familiar, maybe it’s because you’ve seen or even bought chef Andrew Carmellini and wife Gwen Hyman’s beautiful book Urban Italian: Simple Recipes and True Stories from a Life in Food. Or maybe you’re a long-time reader of Fine Cooking and remember it from the September 2008 issue, where it was doubled for presentation as a Thanksgiving side dish. That’s where I first learned about it.
