Giveaway! Win a quickie cooking class Sunday

Private chef and cooking instructor Christy Morgan from Viva La Greens, who recently cooked for Alicia Silverstone, is teaching a series of vegan-oriented cooking classes Downtown and at Surfas. EatingLA is giving away two passes to Sunday's class The Versatile Bean at Surfas.
In just one hour, you'll learn the secrets of the bean including recipes for quick meals with beans and how to wrestle a pressure cooker into submission. And it's ok if you're not vegan -- you can take your beans home and slip a ham hock in them, and the instructor will be none the wiser.

See more classes coming up at VivaLaGreens, including Saturday's Downtown classes: Great Greens and Turning Japanese.
For two free passes to Sunday's bean class, 4-5 p.m. at Surfas in Culver City, email me, Tweet me or reply in the comments with the name of your favorite bean and your email.

UPDATE: The winning bean was Persian lima beans! Thanks for entering, check back soon for more goodies.

I'd love to learn the trick for using a pressure cooker to quickly cook beans. I love black beans but often forget to start them in time.

Canned beans aren't nearly as good as dried - I usually cook with an onion and a ham hock.
