...more precisely, Roasted Red Beets with House-Smoked Ricotta, Blood Orange Supremes, Shaved Fennel and Sunchoke Chips.<crunch, crunch>
SSFL: Sunchoke chips taste like taro chips.
EF: My mom loves those!
SSFL: I do, too! I pick 'em out of the bag of mixed Terra Chips.
EF: (crying laughing) It's the first thing my mom does.
I'm a late-blooming beet-eater, but this salad/app provided sorely-needed sunshine to the eyeballs and winter-weary taste buds; sweet, fork-tender ruby roots with spikes of citrus, anise, crispy-salty-earth kicks from the chips and wisps of smoke from that creamy ricotta.
Beets, beets! DotDEEdootdeeDOO, sheeboom-sheeboomboom.
