Greetings from Flatbush Farm, Brooklyn, NY!

Here are a trio of winning spreads that would be a swell start to any meal, or maybe even a complete meal if the wine and company were good enough. The recipe comes from chef Mike Roberts of the acclaimed Flatbush Farm restaurant in Brooklyn.


"This is a fun communal dish that my customers really enjoy. Thanks for the great beans! Y'all are the best! Let me know what you think." -Mike Roberts
