Hello! We are Jenni (The Gingered Whisk) and Lisa (Parsley, Sage, Desserts and Line Drives) and we are so very excited to be hosting your challenge this month!! We have found the perfect challenge for you this month! It’s warm, it’s comforting, it’s hearty, it’s cassoulet!
Cassoulet is a rich, slow cooked stew or casserole that originated in the south of France during the 14th century. It traditionally contains pork, sausages, and white beans as well as a duck or goose confit and then topped with fried bread crumbs or cracklings. The dish is named after its traditional cooking vessel, the cassole, which is a deep, round earthenware pot with slanted sides. This is a dish that traditionally takes about three days to prepare, but is oh so worth all the effort!! A confit, in case you don’t know, is one of the oldest ways to preserve food.
