The florets of the cauliflower are all thickly connected to the root. Removing the root reveals the branches that can be cut to turn it into florets.

Step 2: Pry Back the The Remaining Thick Leaves

i used to cut cauliflower for a living the quickest wayto get rid of the leaves and stem is to stick a knife under the florets into the stem and twist it

Great photos! And much better than the way I do it which is a little hack and slash sometimes :P
