Caramelized Cauliflower and Cocoa
They Go Really Well Together (TGRWT) is an event conceived by molecular gastronomist, Martin Lersch (blog.kymos.org) with the idea of pairing of ingredients (not necessarily normally paired together) based on their content of volatile aroma compounds. TGRWT #7 is hosted by Papin (Flavor alchemy), who wrote the following:
This is how you can participate in TGRWT #7:
Prepare a dish that combines caramelized cauliflower and cocoa. You can either use an existing recipe (if there is any) or come up with your own. You may use other ingredients; make a savory or sweet dish; use a lot or a little cocoa. It is your recipe, have fun.
Take a picture of the dish and write an entry in your blog by November 1st  with TGRWT #7 in the title. Readers will be particularly interested in how the flavor pairing worked out, so make an attempt at describing the taste and aroma and whether you liked it or not.
[…] Martin has a recipe for caramelized cauliflower and chocolate jelly that may help you get started. His site is also a great starting point for all matters in molecular gastronomy.
Once again, the deadline for entries for TGRWT #7 is 1 November 2007. For more information about TGRWT and complete details on how to participate, please go to:
