... a cassoulet day with Chef Carol
Chef Carol Hawran is an amazing chef and teacher of The Culinary Institute of America. I have the luck of being her friend for quite some time now. Last Friday, Nov 4th we met at her home where we spent the day preparing one of the best and most "well treated" cassoulet I've ever seen prepared. She had the best ingredients, the most beautiful sausages and a perfect duck confit to go with, original french beans for the cassoulet she procured and duck stuck to cook them with, the right herbs and spices for her bouquet garni and most importantly... love was on every step of this wonderful dish. I can almost see her guests faces with tears of joy, cannot be any other way...
