Spanish Table in Berkeley didn't have any.

Maybe someplace in Fruitvale?

  1. Both he and Paula Wolfert tweet about Bram Cookware in Sonoma. They sell clay pots inlcuding bean pots.

    1. I didn't get much of a look due to the crowds at the Diana Kennedy book signing event but they definitely had bean pots for sale at the Yajome St. location; I've been meaning to go back and possibly get one.

      1. I believe he sells them at the store in Napa.
        I've noticed at least a couple of different styles when I've gone in.
        Bram has some gorgeous ones as well, and Steve was extolling the virtues of a bean pot he was using from Bram in one of his recent newsletters.

        1. Bram in Sonoma -- as others alluded to, it has really outstanding cookware... look no further:

          It's in Sonoma on the west side of the square, and if you haven't seen it, the place is truly a marvel. They import fab cookware (and from discussion with the owner I gather his brother is a craftsman/manufacturer/whatever in Egypt, meaning items you can't find elsewhere, though they import from several countries). If you go to Sonoma, it's a must-stop (conveniently located next to another favorite store, Sonoma Home, which has lovely linens, etc).

            Does Bram also carry talavera? I was thinking the other day that it is hard to find some of the rustic pottery of Mexico here.

              Have you checked out Talavera Ceramics in Berkeley? It's a small shop, but pretty well packed with merchandise.
