Cassoulet

My mother cooked a delicious French stew called a cassoulet the other day. It is a perfect dish for a winter day. It contains duck, belly pork, chorizo sausage, beans and is cooked in red wine.

It is traditionally considered a peasent dish, but I rather doubt that peasents would have commonly eaten a stew containing both duck and pork.

Oh, I don't know, those meats were fairly common currency in 'the olden days' :-D

And there I was thinking that French peasents could only afford to eat cake.
