Eastside Road, Healdsburg, December 15, 2009—
THEY'RE ABOUT HALF the size of my left thumb, though considerably thinner, and white and shiny as a piano key in good condition. Corona beans: we get them from a friend who imports them, I'm not sure from where. Lindsey soaks them for a little while, then cooks them gently in water, drains them, and tosses them even more gently with chopped shallots, olive oil, marjoram, salt, and pepper. Not many things are better.
