Chef Theo Friedman's dinners center around multi-course, intimate, and experimental pop-up experiences. He brings new perspectives to food by being inspired by artists, ingredients, and the passionate diners who attend his one-of-a-kind events. In honor of Chef Theo's partnership with Stella Artois, he takes advantage of Union Square Greenmarket's and North Brooklyn Farms' fresh produce to create the ultimate end of summer menu.
How to Cook Basic Beans with Steve Sando
Steve Sando, bean impresario behind Rancho Gordo, outlines the steps from beans in a bag to glorious pot o’ beans. Dried beans may not be fresh, per se, but the ones you're using shouldn’t be more than two years old. Soak them first, and then use the soaking water to cook them. A quick, hard boil followed by a long, slow simmer will get them cooked up right. (Click here for Steve's bean-cooking recipe.)
