Cassoulet in the South of France

We drove 45 minutes to indulge in the best cassoulet in the region...cassoulet is a signature comfort food in the Southern France region. White beans, duck, duck fat, sausage, and spices cooked overnight and served family style. I had two helpings, followed by fresh French bread to soak up the stew's goodness. Dining al freco with nationally renowned cassoulet, two bottles of wine...rose to complement the warm evening.

Completed the course with un cafe with a bit of sugar as Patricia, Nick, and Michael, and I shared stories and laughter. I learned some new vocabulary like twink and bear cub weekends. Travel is the best teacher.

A tout a l'heure,
