Hot Stove Society Cooking Class: The Incredible Bean

Mayocoba, flageolet, pinto, corona, lima, cranberry, garbanzo, black..

There’s a wide variety of dried beans in all kinds of shapes and colors available at the market these days, and plenty of newspaper and magazine articles telling us the humble bean is amazingly nutritious. All you need is someone to show you the ropes of how to properly prepare beans to make them truly delicious.

One of Seattle’s most accomplished food writers, Sara Dickerman, author of Bon Appetit:The Food Lover’s Cleanse and the upcoming Dried & True:The Magic of Your Dehydrator in 80 Delicious Recipes and Inspiring Techniques, will be here to lead a class on preparing dried beans creatively and deliciously. Sara says there is no cheaper or tastier way to make a hearty meal than cooking up a pot of beans. She will introduce you to several different varieties of heirloom beans, walk you through the basic process of cooking dried beans, and then show you several ways you can work beans into your daily rhythms, from a hearty breakfast to a one-dish dinner.

You’ll enjoy substantial tastes of everything Sara demos with wine, beer, and other beverages included. You’ll also have the chance to do some hands-on work- like rolling up your own breakfast burrito!
