National Cassoulet Day

National Cassoulet Day

Cassoulet is a warm and comforting dish that combines white beans with sausage and other meats. National Cassoulet Day is a great day for French-speaking people, those who were born in France, and those who love French food. This dish is from the southwest region of France. It was originally a meal made by peasants and named for the pot it is cooked in: cassole d’Issel. It is a rich, hearty dish that combines beans, meats, and a variety of delicious flavors. Enjoy a large portion of National Cassoulet Day’s delicious French cuisine, so don’t forget your beret! Special cassoulet menus will be offered by many French restaurants, especially to celebrate the occasion. Some people find traditional cassoulet recipes a little too complicated and time-consuming. There are many modern and easy-to-follow recipes on the internet. It might be enjoyable to fly into Paris to see the Eiffel Tower or Notre Dame Cathedral. But, to really enjoy cassoulet, you should head to the Languedoc region in southwest France. Find a local restaurant that serves cassoulet, and make sure you pair it with a great wine. A medium-bodied, crispy red wine such as Marcillac or Madiran, Minervois, Corbieres, is a good choice.

The event is ongoing.
