The BEET Goes On...
Bright magenta beets, comically-stripped chioggia beets, golden beets. You name it, I'm going to cook it. I even found a recipe for a Beet-Nyk, a beet-infused martini.
I know the dessert will be some configuration of chocolate and beet. I might make a chocolate-beet cake, but I might mix it up and do a chocolate-beet mousse. I might make beet-asiago gnocchi. Who knows? I have a month to concoct some tasty treats.
Just giving you fair warning...get ready for beet-mania. And for those who claim "I DON'T eat beets," give some of my recipes a try, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
