Congrats to Steve Sando's twofer! Member Rancho_Gordo has a segment on this week's Spendid Table on NPR, and his delectable beans are featured in the NY Times Magazine.

More congratulations to Steve, who has just been named one of Bon Appetit magazine's "Hot 10" culinary figures for 2009:

Bats and wolves aren't the only endangered species in America. A search for disappearing native food ingredients led Rancho Gordo founder Steve Sando to sow his own seeds for heirloom beans and tomatoes.

Thanks to that wonderful book, Steve is getting lots of good mentions.

Tonight, he's going to be on "Emeril Green" on the Planet Green/Discovery network. I think it's going to be broadcast twice. The first time, I believe, is at 7pm Central.
