"My mother-in-law placed third in the recipe contest that was distributed on Easter Sunday many years ago, " writes S.M. from Mandeville. "Her name was Lorraine Miller. It was cauliflower with an unusual sauce that contained egg yolks, vinegar and green onions. I know there are other ingredients but I don't know what they are.
"It was a family recipe from her grandmother, and since her death three weeks ago I am getting requests from family members for the recipe. She lived in Lake Terrace for Katrina so you know that story.
"It would be wonderful if we could get that recipe to carry on her family tradition. Why do we wait till it's too late to get these things? I guess we never learn! Thanks for your help."
Thanks especially to assistant head librarian Danny Gamble, who located this in the April 14, 1974, special recipe contest section.
