For beets and veggie lovers, this is a not-to-miss column from my foodie friend and culinary inspiration Melissa Elsmo.
She does what I'd love to see every chef do when they come to the Farmers Market to do a food demonstration on Saturdays: scouts out the market, buy what's in season and whip up a simple, yet restaurant-quality dish.
Well, there were two in this case. Then again, there were two shoppers and cooks in this Veggin Out episode, where the Farmers Market was, as they say on Iron Chef, the secret ingredient.
Even without the printed recipes (which may be available in the print versions of the column), these dishes seem easy to replicate. In fact, I think I'll give one or both a try this weekend.
