In Praise of the BeetKitchen
“The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious.” — Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume Beets are indeed deadly serious, or at least they’re intense, concentrated, rich in color, and unmistakable in their boldness.
