Instructions
  1. Place the water, wine, olive oil, cooking salt, lemon juice, butter, chilli, sugar and bay leaves into a large saucepan. Bring to the boil, drop in the cauliflower, and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 8 minutes, then turn over and cook for a further 8-10 minutes, or until just cooked through. Remove from the liquid and drain well.
  2. While the cauliflower is boiling, preheat the oven to 250°C.
  3. Place the cauliflower on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Drizzle with a little oil and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Rotate the sheet and cook for a further 15 or 20 minutes, until golden brown on top.
  4. While the cauliflower is cooking, process the three cheeses with the cream, virgin olive oil and olive herb, until smooth.
  5. To serve, place the roasted cauliflower on a board or platter. Smear the whipped cheese mixture next to it, or serve it in a bowl. Drizzle the cheese with a little virgin olive oil, pine nuts and olive herb. Lightly sprinkle everything with sea salt flakes and chilli flakes. Serve immediately.
