Sometimes food can be so beautiful. These beet and goat cheese "jewels" are simply made by layering those two ingredients. The trick is that the beet coloring — from both golden and red beets — seeps into the goat cheese, which is what gives the terrine that beautiful, varied shading.

I found this recipe at Frances Janisch's blog 7970 Miles, and she talks about first discovering this dish at a restaurant in New York:

One of the starters was this beet and goat cheese 'parfait'. I was so blown away at how beautiful it was, that I came home to try it for myself. It turns out it’s very easy, just a little time consuming, but worth every second. 

I love beets and goat cheese anyway, but this is such a pretty way to eat them! Will you try it out?
