Yes I do Have beetroot mania as you will know by now.
I know have a new recipe from NIGEL SLATER
My favourite English writer and cook
You can look it up on the internet. HE ROASTS THE BEETROOT IN THE OVEN WITH THE CHICK PEAS….
and I made his Gooseberry Fool with my gooseberries from the garden which I had frozen..
He has just started a new Program on BBC 2, Friday 9pm !!
Nigel Slaters Middle East the first series he has made for three years
I think well worth watching, a travel and cooking program in one in his own laid back way.
This is a recipe from Mischa de Winter who worked with me for about 10 years
We often served it for the Open Tuinendagen
He is now to be found at Amsterdam Flavours
