I saw this article in the NYTimes: Bean CounterCulture about Rancho Gordo beans.
I love the Rancho Gordo Beans. I’ve used them since reading about them on The Wednesday Chef and Orangette. They are heirloom beans (Pat calls them my antique or old beans but he’s pretty on board with them after I made Rick Bayless’s cowboy beans) which is sort of cool that they are unusual types. The most important thing is that they taste great.
On my wishlist is Steve Sando’s, the owner, new book Heirloom Beans: Great Recipes for Dips and Spreads, Soups and Stews, Salads and Salsas, and Much More from Rancho Gordo. There are also recipes on the website. I’ve looked through them but I haven’t made any yet.
