Dialect is used in this phrase to show how Oliver interprets the cauliflower its his own distinctive way of presenting the word to his audience to make them really feel and understand how he views the cauliflower; this could be said to be his regional or social language to help him interact with his audience. He is simply describing food, crossing out any barriers that he may have with his audience as know they understand his 'chatty' but 'descriptive' tone of language. As well as this being a chance for Jamie Oliver to interact with his audience on a more chatty tone this could also just be his social and regional dialect this is how he may talk and he is known to say 'beautiful' numerous amounts of times.

He says, “One of the uses of reading is to prepare ourselves for chance, and the final change alas is universal.” His comment about the “final change” being “universal”, the emphasis in Bloom’s essay is that people should be reading works by the great authors such as Sophocles, but he believes that people can gain the most by William Shakespeare. He states that Shakespeare’s plays are masterpieces that they would give people a better understanding of life’s universal experiences.
