Beetroot cheesecake with smoked salmon
I have a childish infatuation with strong coloured food, so when I saw a picture of a beetroot cheesecake on Pinterest I just had to make it.
The Pinterest pin was only a picture with no recipe attached, so I’ve had to develop my own modus operandi. Not that it was particularly hard. Beetroot cheesecake is not very different from other types of savoury cheesecakes, and I’ve decided to go easy on herbs and spices in order to highlight the flavour of beets and smoked salmon.
Besides the colour combination of orange and purple is outstanding, to say the least. So if you are in the mood for an expressionistic antipasto, plan to throw a colour-coded or 80s themed dinner party or just want to make sure that your dinner guests are fully awake from the beginning of the meal, do give the beetroot cheesecake with smoked salmon a try. The taste is phenomenal, even though the colours clash.
