Artful towers of vegetables, like these Beet and Sweet Potato Stacks, certainly make for a stellar presentation at the dinner table. But they do present one rather large conundrum: how do you go about eating the things? My approach is to use a knife and fork. If the stack is sturdy enough, I can slice out a wedge while leaving the rest of the dish intact. If it's not so sturdy, then I slide the layers into more of a jumbled pile before diving in. There is definitely an inherent mess factor with this particular presentation. But I'm a big proponent of the idea that you eat with your eyes first, and I appreciate a pretty dish even if eating it can get a bit tricky. That, and the two-year-old in me really enjoys toppling a good tower. What's your strategy when faced with this dish?
