Beets and WiFi

Local Food: This month, we get to enjoy the first crop of beets from Pete's, roasted to bring out their crisp, earthy and supple sweetness. Steven uses Chiogga beets, also known as candy stripe, as well as golden and red beets to emphasize the variety of color, texture, and flavor. Utilizing the entire plant, he adds the deep greens of the beets for crunch and to balance the moist roasted roots. Light and tangy goat cheese from Vermont Butter and Cheese Creamery makes for a creamy touch, and spiced pecans are added for crunch. Steven tops the salad with a dill horseradish vinaigrette, made with dill from Riverside Farm and horseradish from Rabbi's Roots.
