Ingredients

Beet Salad: 
Candied Pecans:
Gorgonzola Flan:

Directions

Wash and trim the beets. Put them into a roasting pan and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and roast until tender (time will vary depending on the size of the beets). Remove from the oven and let cool. When the beets are cool enough to handle, remove the skins, and cut them into quarters. Toss them in a bowl with the fennel, lemon juice, lemon zest, parsley and oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Chill until ready to serve.

Reduce oven to temperature to 325 degrees F. In a small skillet, toss pecans in corn syrup, sugar, cayenne and salt and pepper, to taste. Bake for 5 minutes, stir and bake for 10 more minutes. Remove the candied pecans from oven and separate them with a fork.

Reduce the oven temperature to 275 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, beat the egg yolks until pale yellow. Heat cream and half-and-half in a small saucepan over low heat, and add slowly it to the eggs. Stir in the Gorgonzola, chives, parsley, and salt and pepper, to taste. Put 6 ramekins in a baking pan and fill the pan with enough boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Divide the flan mixture evenly between ramekins.

Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil and bake until the center of each custard is firm, about 35 to 40 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and put the ramekins on serving plates alongside some golden beet salad and candied pecans.
