This is one dish that if you have not made, you will kick yourself for alll of the years you have missed. The wonderful aroma escaping from the oven while cooking is to die for!
Classic dishes have usually been around for a long time and have a history of being delicious. Cassoulet is usually referred to as a hearty white bean casserole or stew, slow cooked with herbs and meat. Traditional cassoulet is a classic dish made with pork sausage and preserved duck or goose, but there are many new variations using lamb and chicken.
The cassoulet is a rich and filling meal by itself, but goes well with a light salad and a rustic bread. This dish is especially wonderful on a cold winter evening, but is delicious any time of the year.
