This recipe is inspired by a recent trip to Paris with my wife. It captures the mood and flavour of a memorable summer’s day, when we cycled around the beautiful Versailles and had a gourmet picnic by a lake. Our lunch was typically French, with foie gras, duck rillettes, sundried tomatoes, olives and a green salad with cheese and plump raisins. In this recipe, the California Raisins add just the right touch of tang to balance the richness of the foie gras.Cauliflower alla Puttanesca with California RaisinsBy California RaisinsJasper Jek | Managing Partner & Chef, Super Simple
