This delicious and authentic Cassoulet with confit duck and Toulouse sausage is from quality producer, Maison Delpeyrat, in the South-west of France. Cassoulet is a demonstration of patience and love of good, slow cooked food. It begins with a beautiful duck leg confit that is simmered ever so slowly in a broth of white beans, pork sausage, duck fat and a myriad of flavorful herbs like cloves and bay leaves. The result is a hearty and traditional dish – rich, smooth and creamy. This particular Cassoulet uses the best French ducks and whole world-famous Toulouse pork sausages. Ready to heat up and eat. With some nice crusty bread on the side, and a glass of red, this meal is the classic French Bistro winter warmer! Serves 4 people.
The Cassoulet was born in the Middle Ages during a siege of the town of Castelnaudary. Faced with a lack of food, the besieged inhabitants gathered and cooked the food they had left, giving birth to the famous Cassoulet, a dish that remains a firm French favourite to this day.
