Cassoulet

Cassoulet is a truly rustic dish with a blend of aromatic and savory spices that impart upon this dish a unique and intense flavor. Despite the unique combination of herbs and spices, the flavor is subtle and delicate, one could even say soothing.

Cassoulet, named after the earthenware vessel on which it is served, is an aromatic not to mention  hearty bean and meat stew guaranteed to warm your heart and your stomach during the cold winter months of the northern hemisphere. Cassoulet is a truly rustic dish with a blend of aromatic and savory spices that impart upon this dish a unique and intense flavor. Despite the unique combination of herbs and spices, the flavor is subtle and delicate, one could even say soothing. This is one of my favorite things to eat on those days when the temperature hovers around 20F. The key to a perfect cassoulet is the slow cooking process that tenderizes the meat and the beans and infuses the stew with its rich flavor. Your house will be filled with the aroma of thyme and allspice. Believe me, your mouth will water for hours. One of the most debated aspects in the preparation of cassoulet is the choice of  meats. My personal preference is Italian sausage, bacon and pork shoulder cut into bite-size pieces.
