Playing with Pinquitos

Nov 30, 2016

The Central Coast's best kept food secret is the Pinquito Bean. Even if you eat Santa Maria-Style BBQ every day, you may not realize that the bean in the Ranch Beans is the Pinquito. And the beans don't travel any further than the Central Coast. Father Ian went exploring to discover where these come from, why the world doesn't know about them, and what to do with them beyond the Ranch Beans.
