Chef's Beetroot Pasta

 Permanent link   All Posts

Andy Lorimer, Head Chef at the Apex European Hotel in Edinburgh, tells us how to make Beetroot Tagliatelle - his all time favourite dish when he dines at Metro West End.

Andy enjoys making (and eating) this dish as the fresh homemade pasta is colourful and the garlic mushrooms and Parmesan cream gives the dish a fusion of great flavours. Add some chorizo to this dish to give a smoky flavour.
