You don't have to get on a plane to taste one of the glories of Brazilian cooking ... or a bubbling cassoulet from Southwest France ... or a Tuscan soup that tastes like somebody’s grandmother made it. Beans can take you there.

Through The Culinary Institute of America’s ProChef e-learning, “The World Bean Kitchen: Passport to Flavor,” presented by the Northarvest Bean Growers Association, debunks some of the myths that surround the cooking of dry beans. Learning segments include “Beyond Bean Basics,” “Bean Nation: The American Experience,” instructional videos and more.

Recipes developed by the chefs at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone demonstrate classic and contemporary bean dishes. In several streaming videos, students can watch the chefs prepare such recipes as Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Rosemary White Beans and Sautéed Swiss Chard and Black Bean Omelet with Avocado Salsa Verde, and learn valuable cooking techniques.
