We are two old friends filled with a love for food and travel (and the beach).  Over the years we have both spent time living and working abroad and in different parts of the United States. From Thailand to France, from Senegal to Japan –  we have always managed to keep the other in-the-loop in regards to our culinary adventures.

As we find ourselves back in Massachusetts, no longer with oceans or mountain between us, we want to keep the tradition going with this blog!  We Got the Beets primarily focuses on food, but there’s a story and a lot of inspiration that goes behind each dish.  This blog includes recipes, photos, quotes, music, travel experiences, and the list will grow with each additional post.

We hope that our posts encourage you to pick up that spatula and give some recipes a go – because now, you got the beets!

Got a question?  Comment?  Drop us a line at wegotthebeets@gmail.com.

Thanks and happy cooking!

Anne & Rachel

  2. Hi Anne & Rachel, Thank you for visiting my blog so that I could find yours. 🙂 You have a fun and delicious blog. Are one of you ladies Japanese or lived in Japan? In either case, I love the Japanese humor here-and-there. Very nostalgic for me. 🙂 Fae.

    • Hi Fae,
      We have both been to Japan (together) and I (Rachel) have lived in Yamaguchi prefecture-Hagi for two years! We love your photos of Japan and reminds us of what a beautiful country it is. Will have to make a trip again soon 🙂 Thank you for visiting and we’ll have to try your recipes soon, too!
