1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Arrange the beets in a roasting pan and add cinnamon, bay leaves and water. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 1 hour, until the beets are tender; transfer to platter to cool; discard the liquid and spices.
2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix the shallot, vinegar and a large pinch of salt. Let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in the orange zest, tarragon, parsley, chives and oil; season with salt.
3. Peel and trim the beets and slice them 1/4-inch thick. Arrange the beet slices in overlapping rows on a platter. Stir the herb dressing and spoon it over the beets. Scatter the pistachios and reserved 1/4 cup chopped parsley on top and serve.
