Share the Cassoulet Love

Our friends at Tasting Table recently posted a fantastic article on cassoulet. In it, they explore the history of this French classic, teach you how to make duck confit at home, and interview our own Ariane, and chefs Ludo Lefebvre, Dominique Ansel, and Laetitia Rouabah, a formidable competitor at the recent Cassoulet War. Topics include the controversy over the crumb top, the correct beans to use, and all the meats fit to eat.

    This is one I’ve never tackled at home. But, I adore everything that’s found inside. Adding this to the menu soon!

    Just trying out your Cassoulet kit. When I finished loading everything into the dish there was a huge mound of beans. Your comments state that the kit is sufficient to fill the dish – seems to overfill the dish and the beans are just drying out.
    I don’t expect an immediate response as it is Easter Sunday but I have 10 people waiting on this dish.
    Will let you know what happens

      We hope that the cassoulet came out well, and was enjoyed by your guests. If you used our bowl and our kit, there shouldn’t have been bean overflow. We have tested this recipe in the bowl many times, and have not experienced this. The beans are supposed to get crusty on top, and dry out a bit in that process. Please let us know how it came out. You can always call our customer service team at 800-327-8246 M-F 9:00 to 5:00 EST with any questions or concerns.
