The Cassole


Last winter, I took the train down south. They do sausage very well down there. Just before I left, Kate put a little cassole in my hands. It is an itty bitty version of the heirloom vessel she writes about on her blog today. Today I noticed that she has begun, with the knowledge she has gathered over the years, to address the singular elements of the cassoulet, one by one. She begins with the cassole. I respond by bringing the one she gave me out from the cupboard, preparing to follow her lead.

Yummm, Cassoulet! I had the real thing once (At least, I think it was the real thing) It was incredible and so different for the usual!

Ok, Lucy V. Let's make cassoulet!
Now we have the cassole, what comes next? The bean. Start hunting around for a very good bean. They are fresh this time of year and don't need soaking. The Cassoulet game's afoot!
