I have very specific ideas about how beans should be cooked and served and nothing delights me more than being proved wrong. Or at least surprised.
This glorious plate is roasted sturgeon, Rancho Gordo beans, bacon, smoked garlic and sage, as enjoyed by one of my regular blog destinations, The Spamwise Chronicles. It's a dish I wouldn't have come up with in a million years and it looks beyond delicious.
Hearth is located at 403 East 12th Street in the East Village and it's somewhat of an institution among my online friends. I'm tickled that my beans are on the summer menu.
