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.
