I checked with my building/bridge obsessed boyfriend who confirmed that a few shots are from Glasgow... but I'll watch the film again to be sure... I'm guilty of wearing black most of the time with heeled boots, that's for sure. And a fun fact is that there's a rumor (that I believe) that ice cream vans here sell drugs and cruise the student halls of residence. Very Gotham. And it's still full of large, empty, dramatic industrial buildings. Parts have been completely modernised, but all the old tenements are still here (I live in one).
Yep, way off topic... back to beans.
The cooking process you're talking about sounds very much like slow cooking, which is my cooking method of choice when doing anything involving beans as it's so low effort/energy efficient. I'll try cooking beans for longer and see what happens. As for washing off the gunk, I knew to do that but mainly because of the high sodium levels. I might look into this further for fun.
