The Everyday Bowl
When my kids go off to college, I’ll stock their dorm room with 1 of these bowls and 1 mug, then cross my fingers they’ll use them for something other than Top Ramen and Jungle Juice.

Plus, the way the little endive boats cradle the warm, toasty mixture - it's a structural masterpiece.
"I grew up in Texas, and Tex-Mex cuisine's pretty engrained in my tastebuds. This soup hits all the right notes for me: the roasty heat of the chipotles, the flavor blast of all the cilantro, the acid of the tomatillos, the nourishing simplicity of the beans and hominy, and the unrepeatable smell of the poblanos when they are getting roasted on an open flame— and the luxurious frugality."- John Vigeland, CFO
