A few years ago, I had roasted cauliflower for the first time. I’d always thought I hated cauliflower, but I’d really only ever had it on a crudités platter. And, even dipped in ranch dip, it was not something I ever wanted to eat. Then, I had dinner with a friend at 13.5% Wine Bar in Hampden and Chef Kate Erwin changed my outlook on cauliflower.
