I've written about bean bowls already. You find the perfect one and you always have a side of beans with your meal. I still have my favorite, made by Lourdes. We have these in our Rancho Gordo store here in Napa, along with these nice white bowls by local artist Erin Dowling-Michael. But don't forget these great bean bowls from Bram in Sonoma. The added bonus is that you can order them over the internet and have them ship to you. Visit Bram online.
