I have made the cassoulet with pan fried duck, pork and lamb pieces however instead of pork sausages I have substituted with sliced fried merguez sausages. Absolument fantastique!

Cassoulet and merguez

Hello Hans
Are you Dutch ? Thanks for your kind comments and for having found time and energy for preparing a cassoulet. Cassoulet is from a part of France which was under the Arabic invasions during the Middle Ages but I am not aware that they had brough some food specialties like merguez !... (we can find dishes which are obviously Arabic style specialties in the southwest of France, like the "croustade gasconne" but they were brough back home by the French crusaders from the middle east). I am kidding a little bit ... Happy new year to you

Thank you Mr. Dubarry for your reaction to my "variation on the cassoulet". I would like to add, that here in Brisbane, Australia I make a cassoulet once during our winter (June-Sept)for a large number of friends and family. I like to present the cassoulet with a side dish of a mixed salad with lemon/honey dressing and topped with fried pieces of the duck's skin (slightly salted). I accompany this rather rich dish with a great Australian Chardonnay ("Devils Lair" from Western Australia). Although I live and work already for 27 years in Australia, my favorite food is and will always be French. That is what I love to cook. To answer your initial question "Oui, je suis un Hollandais/Australien". Bonne Annee et a votre Sante!

Re: Cassoulet

If you are looking for the best merguez around check out the delis stall on various Brisbane markets or online.

I was fortunate to have had this Cassoulet at A Souceyrac. It was wonderful, and this is now the recipe I use at home. M. Asfaux was a most gracious host, and particularly attentive to helping our 10 year old daughter negotiate a menu in French I always think of fondly. A true gentlemen.
