After a fan wrote to the Barefoot Contessa asking how to cut cauliflower so it doesn't get all over the kitchen, Garten realized it was time to share her pro insights with her fans. "If you cut straight through the top, it gets all over your kitchen," she said in an Instagram video. So, what do you do instead? Simply flip it over and carefully cut around the core.
Once you've made it all the way around the center of the cruciferous veggie, you can break off the florets, which will be in pretty big sections. Then to make them smaller, you cut through the stem and can pull them apart totally mess-free. Now whether you're turning them into mouth-watering buffalo wings or creamy mac and cheese, you can avoid a tedious clean-up.
