I happened upon this book at a promotion in my local bookstore. Since my husband is a bean-a-holic, and the sample recipes the author had prepared were delicious, I decided to buy it.
I've made half a dozen of the recipes so far, and I've been delighted with every one. I note that another reviewer complains that the recipes call for dry beans... well, you CAN use canned if necessary.

The black turtle bean pate with tequila is divine. I tasted Aliza Green's version at the book signing and promptly tried to make my own. Mine was *almost as good and was gobbled up by my guests... I *will try again!
I hope you'll consider this book if you love beans and other legumes. It's a delight. And many recipes are vegetarian or have a vegetarian option, for those who don't eat meat.

I highly recommend this book for people who enjoy cooking. If you are the instant gratification sort of person, you can use canned beans in place of dried but the time and effort is paid off 10 fold if you use good quality or heirloom beans.
I love to cook. When my boyfriend of 15 years decided to become a vegetarian, 98% of my "go to" meals were nixed. I had images of plates full of tofu and raw veggies and feared the loss of hearty comfort foods roasted and braised meats provide. This book, along with the discovery of heirloom beans have opened a whole new world of comfort food cooking to me. A life spent eating mass produced canned beans I had no idea how hearty, versatile and satisfying beans could be!
Aliza Green spends the first 3 chapters of the book explaining the history,... read more
