Over the course of my new employment I've gone from eating a shamefully large amount to fast food to cooking my own meals - mostly using a small set of culinary techniques you might call my favourite brushes. Naturally I need something that reheats well once you've gotten it to the office, and the list of foods I know of that have "plays well with microwave radiation" as a feature are pretty slim. Lots of pastas in sauces.
This one on the left here is fusilli in veloute (chicken veloute if you want to get precise). The fusilli was cooked in the water from boiling the beet sections, and a small amount of that water was added to the sauce, which is where this marvellous colour comes from.
