Don't eat Fava beans raw. According to The Wikipedia: "They contain vicine and convicine, which can induce hemolytic anemia in patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD). This condition, which is quite common in certain ethnic groups, is called "favism"." Not related to the school of painting I reckon. Cooking renders the beans safe. Pecorino renders them yummy.
