The first time I had buffalo cauliflower I thought it was the most brilliant thing ever. My Mom who is a vegetarian and use to love buffalo wings could now partake in a non carnivore version. The buffalo cauliflower is slowly swooping in and stealing the hearts of   vegetarians and meat eaters alike. I know it has it’s grips on me.

Back in March of this year I was invited to Avery Island, the home of Tabasco, as one of the #TabascoTastemakers . I spent a few magical days there taking in the bayou and all the charms of the south…. especially the food. Can you say the best crawfish….ever? In those days I tasted all the different Tabasco sauces “Tabasco” makes, and of course I had few favorites. I will be posting more about my trip and the different flavors I tried over the course of a handful of posts, but I’d like to start with the Buffalo Tabasco. The second it touched my tongue, I knew I would  recreate buffalo cauliflower paired with blue cheese, carrots, and celery. That’s exactly what I did. My Mom loved it, and so did my man. Not only that… so easy to make when the buffalo flavor comes in a bottle.
