5. Roasted hazelnuts
6. Beetroot gel (sweet)
- Beet juice

The beet dust is a great visual on the plate. The rest appears more difficult than I think I could accomplish. It is beautiful, fine dining worthy.

What I think I could do, is make raw beet carpaccio, perhaps using red beets and then top with some match stick yellow beets, serve on a bed of something green, maybe arugula, and drizzle with a little dressing.

My best tips is to have some different textures and different flavours. Beets are very sweet, so you should try having something acidic (f.i. pickled beets) and something salty (f.i. goats cheese) together with the raw carpaccio. Pickling (raw) beet slices make the slices a bit more tender.

Good luck! Let me know how it turned out! :)
