Where to get cassoulet beans?
Making cassoulet this fall.
What is the best bean to use? Used Great Northern last year, and they seemed too large and starch/beany.
Previously had used smaller flageolet beans, in a box from Monterrey Market, and they worked well. But couldn't find them last year.
Seems if Berkeley Bowl doesn't have it, you don't need it. But not true in this case.
Any suggestions for dried bean selection? East Bay or North Bay preferred.

Both cannellini and flagelot are available at Rainbow. I'm very surprised that you could not find flagelot at BB.
Check Market Hall Produce in Rockridge, which has a selection of heirloom beans; or the ever popular Food Mill which pretty much has everthing.
