The Book List


  • BRAM Cookware
    Amazing collection of clay pots for cooking, now available onlilne.
  • Black Chamba Pots from Toque Blanche
    If you're eager to start cooking with clay, this is the place to start. I love the round soup pots for beans but the casseroles will do as well.
  • Chiles from Tierra Vegetables
    Lee and her brother grow and dry some great chiles. Visit them at the farmers market, online or at their stand.
  • Wonderful Organic Rice
    Take it from someone who generally isn't nuts about brown rice- this stuff is grand!

About Rancho Gordo and this blog

  • We grow many varieties of New World products, specializing in heirloom beans. We sell only domestically in the US at this point, via our website (, directly to restaurants and at farmers markets. The older I get, the more I realize I've barely begun to scratch the surface of the things that interest me, so this blog is hardly the last word on anything, just a collection of experiments. If you have questions, more information or corrections, I'd love to hear from you in the "comments" section after each post.
