OK, I’m sure you’ve been wondering why we named our vlog after a mildly obscure root vegetable. We think beets are very tasty and provide a nice, wholesome image. (If an apple works for a computer maker, why not a beet for a vlogger?)

We’ve been searching the Internet for some good videos about our favorite root vegetable and found a very cool one. Here’s a segment from the Hippy Chef, the wonderful folksy cooking show from San Francisco – shot in the Haight Ashbury district! He has great tips on preparing on borscht (beet soup) and beet salad.  Hope there’s no acid in the viniagrette!

Please post your comments below with your favorite beet recipies, photos and video segments!
