"Just because I am a chef doesn't mean I don't rely on fast recipes. Indeed, we all have moments when, pressed for time, we'll use a can of tuna and a tomato for a first course. It's a question of choosing the right recipes for the rest of the menu."
Jacques Pepin, Chef
I had beans similar to this at a little neighborhood restaurant in London and had to recreate them. They are great served with lamb meatballs, but as a side to a simple steak you have a perfect, easy meal.
Cayenne is a species of extremely hot chili pepper. It is small to medium sized (about 2 - 5 inches long) and bright red. Most cayenne grown today is dried and ground into cayenne pepper. Buy ground cayenne in small amounts so that it doesn't lose its fresh flavor. As it ages, it turns from a bright pepper red to a duller brownish red.
