 h1. Dear readers,

 We're not just about [/chocolate chocolate] this week; we've also got plenty to say about butter and beans (including the surprising properties of bean stock). It makes sense, because at Culinate we celebrate the basics -- the beauty of stellar ingredients and simple food -- day in and day out.

 In the mood to bake? Check out our podcast of Greg Patent talking about his new book, A Baker's Odyssey, a collection of 130 recipes from recent immigrants to the United States. We're giving away five signed copies of Patent's book; to win one, leave a comment on the podcast page. Plus, if you're in Portland, Oregon, and want to attend Patent's baking class on Tuesday, February 12, let us know; we're giving away a pair of tickets to that event.
