We have received an amazing selection of beautiful beans and legumes to enjoy this winter. Celadon Flageolets, red and white Calypsos, black and white European Soldiers, Favas, Cranberries, Kidneys, Cannellinis, Habas… and so, so much more. Soak them overnight, put them in a dutch oven or slow cooker with some herbs or dried mushrooms, cover with stock or water, and let them soak up all that goodness and cook slowly. So simple, so good.

Congratulations Jacob Markowitz of the Golden State Warriors, winner of Ratto’s first-ever catering contest. Our neighbor Jacob will be hosting a party for his staff replete with all the wonderful platters that Ratto’s has to offer. Jacob’s staff will be treated to deli, cheese, sandwich and salad platters, like the Mediterranean, below.
We’ve just received a plethora of gorgeous salts. Salts from the sea, salts from volcanoes, salts infused with dried truffles and porcinis, salts with herbs. They are a quick taste booster to any dish. They also have an amazing way of making your next Tequila-based drink extra special. Just rub some citrus around the rim, and dip your glass in the salt. Here we’ve mixed lava salt with chili powder for a very fun and explosive flavor. Hint: chill your glasses in the freezer for extra refreshment.
