Thank you all for your comments etc.
"I gave up on them a few years ago can never keep them so white- what's the secret?"
Keep the curd covered either by leafs from the cauli itself or a plastic bag to keep the rain, frost, sunlight and everything else off the surface. As the curd starts to develop cut away the larger outer leafs and pop a clear or white bin liner or some other bag over the curd and lightly tie underneath.

There was plenty of cheese sauce on it over the weekend....Yum
I am so jealous - I've never managed to grow one worth the name.
Well done. Grrrr
I tried the bent leaves over the curds but it never seemed to really work never thought of a plastic bag would have worried it might "sweat & rot"
Cheese sauce by all means, but it also makes a lovely salad. Steam it gently so it still has some crunch, and toss it in a mustardy vinaigrette while it's still warm.
