Beans Around The World.
I was so excited when I first saw a combined soup bowl, because I frequently order two different soups to comprise my meal when dining out. Besides, I prefer duets to solos, pairs skating to singles...and the same is true for flamenco dancing. The dancing eighth notes (on the left) join up with the dancing sixteenth notes (on the upper right) to dance together as a couple. The beans on the rim of the soup bowl are a reference to polka dots, a traditional pattern for flamenco dresses. And the cilantro garnish is a nod to the fan, which adds a beautiful texture while both concealing and revealing.
As a family with 5 children, I would cook with a lot of food with beans in it. Unfortunately, my oldest son did not like beans until I found a recipe for Cowboy Beans. Wow! This changed it for him. He loved them! (Funny how a the name of the recipe made such a difference, haha!)
This recipe is probably 100 years old. I named it after my grandmother, who I called "Honey". This was her mother's recipe. Her mother came to this country from the Azores in 1904, as a widow with 5 children. She brought the oldest, a son, and the youngest, my grandmother with her. As she earned money cooking on Ranches in the San Francisco Bay Area, she was able to bring her other three children to the United States.
I never knew they had "Pink Beans" as this recipe calls for. I was sure the local market wouldn't have them, but there they were. My husband loves these beans and he says he has never tasted anything like them. I serve with some crusty garlic bread. Always delicious.
Feijoada is the Brazilian national dish, a richer mixture of meats, black beans and lots of flavour. There are as many recipes as cookers, but always with the black beans as the main character... and here is my version: the way I like it on my table on Saturdays! Enjoy this dish, that is the culinary translation of Brazilians rich mixture of cultures, colours and flavours!
Beans Around The World.
When I was a teenager, my best friend's father flew to Brazil and returned with a Brazilian good luck charm for my charm bracelet. Since that time, I have enjoyed making and eating Brazilian black beans. And I have been fascinated with certain similar shapes that appear in Brazilian imagery, both natural and man-made. I hope you agree!
