I've talked about Bram before and now it's your turn to see what all the excitement is about. I'm lucky enough to live 25 minutes away from the square in Sonoma but if it's a little further for you, you can still order from them over the web. Most of their stock is theirs exclusively, from Egypt, but they also carry tagines, chamba (from Colombia) and lots of other essential clay pieces. The pots go directly on the gas (or electric with the help of a heat diffuser) and if you love to cook, you'll find you use your clay pots everyday. Naturally, for beans, there just isn't a better way to cook them. Visit Bram online.
