I pulled out Culinary Artistry. Some of the flavor buddies for beets include:


Spices: allspice, cloves, curry, ginger, nutmeg, paprika

Herbs: chives, dill, fennel, tarragon, parsley

Fruit: apples, lemon, oranges

Veg: cucumber, horseradish, mache, onions, potatoes, shallots, watercress

Meat/fish: anchovies, bacon, proscuitto, salt pork, smoked fish

Misc.: bechamel, brown sugar,butter, cheese, cream, creme fraiche, eggs, vinegar (balsamic, sherry, white wine), walnuts, walnut oil


The misc. section suggests some ideas for desserts for those who really, really love beets. Beet tart, beet flan, pink cheesecake, etc.

I made a beet cheesecake once, based on a recipe for carrot cheesecake. The color was – to be kind – lurid. But it was delicious.

What fun to read all these great beet recipe ideas!


Our Farmers Market started up this week and I couldn't be happier for spring vegetables having arrived.


Don't know why but lately I've been craving anchovies and beets in everything. Bucatini pasta with anchovy and garlic...caesar salad with anchovies...and this...a super yummy Beet Salad tossed in Anchovy Dressing.

Beet Salad tossed in an Anchovy Infused Balsamic Dressing, served on a Bed of Baby Arugula and topped with a Farm Fresh Soft Boiled Egg

Happy Spring!!!
