Many things have been said and written about the red beet, no doubts there. It certainly is not only Rasputin’s favorite vegetable, if not due to its fabulous taste, at least owing to the fact that it turns our pee pink. Who wouldn’t want that?! Be it as it may, I’d like to a) share this fantastic “atomic” specimen which we recently bought at Bio Company in Berlin (and subsequently backed in the oven together with onions and apples and rapeseed oil!), b) recommend as so often before Tom Robbins’ legendary book “Jitterbug Perfume”.
