Cassoulet in Carcassone?
Spending one night in Carcassone in early September and thought would be good to try cassoulet since it is a regional dish (I believe). Wonder where to go for this? Staying right outside the walls of the fortress.
Ohhh, can't tell you where to eat, but will say lucky you! Beautiful city, great food, and wonderful, wonderful, wine.
Have a great trip!
As you can imagine, all the restaurants claim to make the absolute best cassoulet in the old city.
The lady who ran the small hotel where we stayed recommended two-- we ended up at Auberge de Dame Carcas -- because of a wedding inside, we sat outside (it was April, so a little crisp, but not too bad) -- huge bowls of bubbling cassoulet, and right on a main intersection in the city, so lots of ambiance.
Prices not too bad.
La Marquière on the rue Saint Jean (inside the walls) has an excellent and very classic cassoulet ... but the restaurant itself is relatively pricey and chichi
