I just can’t recommend these enough.  Forget about the green beans, it’s all about Shallots and Garlic, both of which, you basically can’t use enough.  🙂  The website, Rouxbe, is a joint venture with Dean & Deluca and the Northwest Culinary Academy of Vancouver and I think it’s about the only site that has streaming video lessons, as well as a lot of tips on buying ingredients and techniques.

Sauteed French Green Beans.
