Beets and goat cheese enjoy a pleasant relationship on the plate because the deep, earthy flavor of the beet and the barn-like flavor of the cheese are so well aligned and balance each other so well; each has a unique personality that is hard to miss. The date cake is a fruit component that is tempered and subdued and adds a simple note of refined sweetness that does not interrupt what the other flavors have to say. The micro lovage is a grassy-tasting herb, slightly minty, that pairs well with the goat cheese.
