Musical pairing – Beat It by Cris Delanno
An Ode to Color – My favorite thing about beets is their color. Just sliced into, they reveal shocking jewel-bright shades of burgundy and topaz and saffron. Juiced, and they will turn a whole smoothie creamy pink. And roasted–wrapped in foil and slowly, intensely roasted– they simply can’t seem to restrain their bloody, passionate vibrancy. Juices start to leak through the seams in the foil, beads of dark ruby that collect on the roasting pan and shimmer and simmer there.
