We grew up pronouncing the word Caul-La-Flower and it still catches us off guard when we hear it otherwise. Last night while folding laundry we caught a little bit of Iron Chef, Battle Cauliflower and while it made for a little light entertainment to make the chore seem less mundane, the chefs in attendance pronounced things Caul-Lee-Flower. At some point it almost become comical to hear it said so many times in a row and it got us thinking, how do you say it? Is it a family pronunciation? A local thing? We're curious to hear your results!
