On Saturday, CUESA celebrated their bean love with demos by my beloved Lorna Sass and my new hero, Dominque Crenn of Luce.
I was supposed to help but I spent most of the day (O.K.: ALL DAY) visiting all my old buddies, vendors and customers. I know people give the market a lot of grief (too many strollers, too many tourists) but when the weather is good and it's before 11 a.m., it's really a magical place.
I was bombarded by questions about rumors of a Rancho Gordo store and all I can say at this point is that they are just rumors.
The food at the demos was of course great and well-run by Sara Henkin and company. I'm very proud to be part of the CUESA machine!
