Wow. Honestly I’d pick #2 also – but I love leeks and squash. The pie does sound amazing, too.

I am not sure, but the pie sounds amazing!  

 

Perhaps a lactose thing though?  

or the thought of a “puree” and “mash” might be turning people off.

Maybe they think the Cauliflower puree is the main component?  I would lean away from it if I thought it was the main part…. If you told me it was oozing cheese and onion I would think yummy,  if you said cauliflower puree I’d think butternut squash pasta!

I think people just love pasta. Plus – people may choose something they’ve already had before and know they like it.  I’ve never had a cheese pie before, so I would opt for #2.  They both sound excellent and what a tasty veg menu you have!

Plus – you are being generous by offering people an option – so try not to stress about it.  I’ve had people write on their response cards “if you’re serving this, I don’t want it, but if you’re serving THIS, I do want it”.  Rude, but what can ya do?

I would’ve picked the first one too! But I’m not a leek and fennel fan…

maybe its the cauliflower? i think the 2nd one sounds amazing because anything with feta and pine and fennel is delish to me. The pie does sound VERY good though. I agree with @CanadianBride2011 too, people love pasta and probably are going with something familiar. Don’t stress too much, I think both sound delicious!

I dont like cauliflower so I would have picked the 2nd one, although I dont like leeks either.

Yeah, the Cauliflower puree was a turn off along with the unknown Winter Roots. I would have called a Three Cheese Pot Pie with Califlower swirl.

I would definitely pick the 2nd option because it sounds healthier, and seems to have a bit more variety to it, if that makes sense!!  I would think people are choosing #2 to be safer since it sounds more familiar..

@jem123:

Yes, I too thought it was pasta… I would probably change it to pasta… people are probably reading canelloni=pasta and picking that because they know of it.

I also didnt know what winter roots were :S
