To make the affogato cauliflower, spread layers of the ingredients in a medium saucepan like a lasagna. Start with a little extra virgin olive oil, then a layer of the black olives and onions, then a layer of the cauliflower, cheese and a seasoning of salt and pepper
2
Repeat this process until you have used all the ingredients, then pour over the wine, cover the with a lid and cook on a low heat for about 40 minutes. Don't stir the ingredients during the cooking, but shake the pan occasionally, adding a little water if necessary
