If you’ve ever found yourself picking up pounds of beans at the grocery store just because they are so darn pretty, then you should head over to Marcus Samuelsson’s site to check out my post and recipe for cranberry beans with artichokes, zucchini, and pasta!

Speaking of Marcus, he recently wrote a memoir called Yes, Chef! that is truly one of the best memoirs I’ve ever read.  I couldn’t put it down when I was on vacation in Florida a few weeks ago.  While I’m going to write a full-fledged review at some point in the near future, Whole Foods recently contacted me to invite me to a book signing he is doing on Thursday, August 16th at their Bowery location in NYC from 6:30-7:30pm.  Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend, but I thought I’d spread the word so that anyone in NYC who wants to go, has the opportunity!

    What a shame you can’t get to that event. Sadly, I won’t be there either as I’m just a short plane-ride away. Nothing like 24 hours of flying in an economy seat! Cranberry beans? I haven’t heard of them. I’ll look them up xx

  22. I’ve never seen/heard of cranberry beans .. they look so pretty but I hate when food loses its colour when cooked! I bought candy cane beets once just because they were pretty but then got home and read that they lose their pretty stripes once cooked. I don’t think I even ended up using them.

  23. Monet says:

    Unusual beans paired with my all-time favorite artichoke equals a win-win! I can’t wait to try something like this Joanne. Thank you for sharing!
