The mysterious beet e-mail
Trendy food? Good winter veggie?
A buddy of mine will be visiting soon - and I was wondering if you've run across any good beet dishes in your travels.
B&O Brasserie for their beet tartare?
Tapas Teatro (spelling?) for the beets in olive oil and sea salt?
Suggestions welcome. ...
First of all, usually when friends come to visit, people want to me to tell them where to find the best crab cake in town or great seafood. Not beets.
Now don't get me wrong. I love beets. But clearly this guy is in a whole other class of beet lovers.
If he's serious about this beet thing, he should take his friend to Frederick for Volt's "tasting of Tuscarora Farm beets, upland cress, balsamic, Cherry Glen Farm goat cheese mousse, and cara cara orange" (pictured).
