Sorry, I missed this. Thanks. We were part of Bon Appetit's Hot 10 one year. It was very glamorous and they flew me to NY and there was a huge party. Ted was the host and he's been a great supporter ever since. I love when people had no idea about beans and then they discover heirlooms and flip out.
I haven't seen it yet but apparently we're in this month's Cooks Illustrated in a heartbreaking article about canned beans. I think they like the canned fine but they also like ours. I'm happy for the attention but friends don't let friends eat canned beans. The fact that you have to rinse the slimy bean broth off of them is reason enough!


Visit beautiful Rancho Gordo!

Rancho Gordo is even available in New Zealand - seen it in a couple of places now.  If it's not in Canada, you Canadians must have been very bad in a past life.

It actually may be available somewhere in Canada. But Canada's a pretty big place and e-commerce here is improving but still relatively non-existent. I live in a pretty remote area far from any of the major business areas in Canada so I do a fairly large amount of online shopping. As much as I'd like to help the economy by online shopping within Canada, not many businesses want to make money that way here so a lot of my money goes across the border.
