Cassoulet on the Brain
Looking for a fantastic serving of this. Want to take a trip to Southern France without the plane ride. Could be authentic or another take, as long as it's Delicious.
Any idea's for where to go would be appreciated. Even if it's not on the regular menu...
I had a great one at the Ivy/Andaz, but that was before Coulon left. Might call and ask if it's still on the menu.
We went about three weeks ago and it was spot on. Thought it might be a little rocky since it was only a couple weeks in but everything was wonderful. We went on a Sunday which is typically an off night for chefs but everything was beautifully done and the service was great. The room after dark is not as nice as it might be with the great view but we had a great time and enjoyed everything. we will definitely be back. Perhaps for the cassoulet.
Just got an email from the Euro Food Depot, see below, also the cassoulet at Le Bastide (sp) in SR looks good, although I have yet to try it.
Hello Euro Foodies!
Attention all hard-working busy bees and over-scheduled social butterflies! Starting next week, you will have the opportunity to enjoy authentic French home-cooked meals, prepared by renowned chef Samuel Geffroy from Tapenade in La Jolla in the comfort of your own home.
Each Friday Euro Food Depot will carry a different delicious dish, available in single or double portions, to reheat at your convenience. Never resort to fast food or frozen TV dinners again!
Simply pick up a few fresh gourmet meals and serve them whenever you run out of time for cooking. Next week try the cassoulet, a hearty Southwestern French classic made with duck, sausage, beans and fresh vegetables.
Thank you so much for this recommendation of Euro Food Depot. I didn't even know about this place but went out there today. The owner is so nice!
Anyway the scoop on the cassoulet is, he will have it Monday. It comes in vacuum packed bags so, will last for a bit. $25-$28 for each bag which will is for 2, but when he told me what was in there... sounds like it could feed 3.
For now, duck rillettes in the fridge.. mmm.
Took our eating group to La Bastide tonight for cassoulet because of this thread, and they did not disappoint.
Great meal, and in an area of SD I never go.
Thanks for the tip!
