History of the Winter Cassoulet

Cassoulet is a rich, slow-cooked casserole originating in the south of France. The dish is named after its traditional cooking vessel, the cassole, a  pot with slanting sides.

The region once known as the province of Languedoc is the traditional homeland of cassoulet, especially the towns of Toulouse, Carcassonne, and Castelnaudary, the town which claims to be where the dish originated.All are made with white beans.
