  3. Caviar: Serve Chilled.
  4. Spoon: Make a spoon template using a plastic container lid. Slice potato very thin. Lay potato under template and cut out with a paring knife. Fry at 340 degrees until golden brown
  5. Beet Powder: Dry in an oven at 150 degrees for approximately 12 hours. Then grind in a coffee grinder.
  6. Presentation: Place two petals from an edible flower on a plate. Adorn the potato spoon with chive créme fraiche and chilled caviar. Drizzle the plate with chive oil. Sprinkle with a line of beet powder. VOILA!!
