Method

1.To make the cake, grate the beetroot into a bowl.

3.To make goat’s cheese mousse, mix equal quantities of goats cheese and semi whipped cream, soak gelatine and melt in a little hot water mix into goats cheese and set in desired shape, on this occasion a tube.
4.To make beetroot puree, use cooked beetroot, this seems to puree easier than cooking yourself, blend with a hand blender till smooth then add a little vinegar and salt to season and a little pepper to taste.
5.To make beetroot cannelloni make juice out of raw beetroot bring to the boil with a little salt and agar agar, simmer for 4 mins then remove from heat, add pre soaked gelatine and dissolve set on a flat tray for a thin sheet note whilst setting avoid moving the tray as it will not set.
6.Once cooled, cut out oblongs and wrap around goats cheese mousse
