Notes about this recipe

    We had this years ago at the Demonica restaurant in New Orleans (when Alon Shaya was the chef there) and it was amazing. Finally got around to trying it at home, and while it's not quite as amazing, it was still delicious. The whipped goat cheese is so good. I added a bit too much feta, so it was a little on the salty side, so next time I'll watch that. The first time I made this I made the poaching liquid according to the recipe. The second time, I used homemade chicken broth instead of the wine and added some fresh thyme. I don't think it makes a huge difference. I like this poach and roast method and while it might take a bit more time, it's not difficult.

    I agree with mirage in that this was not a "quick to make" way of roasting cauliflower nor a cheap one (the two possibilities I think she might have been implying when saying "(it) was (not) worth it." But, my dinner party raved about the cauliflower tonight: It looked gorgeous, it tasted better and it disappeared 100% despite a lot of competing veggie sides. I used the full 1 T of red pepper suggested in the "booze broth." The cheese mixture was yummy, too but I had quite a lot leftover.

    I didn't think doing the cauliflower that way was worth it - next time I'll just roast it normally. But the goat cheese was fabulous!

    Simmering cauliflower in a spicy broth to boost its flavor before roasting is, well, genius. The accompanying cheese is mighty tasty, too.
