Itinerant Kitchen: Mike Makes Cassoulet and Joe Swick Somms|
Monday Decemeber 9
Cold weather means its time for Cassoulet. Mike's making two kinds, one a traditional cassoulet with tons of meat (confit duck, susage, etc) and one vegetarian one that is maybe even better and also probably more like what the dish started out as when it was peasant food before the wealthier townfolk made it their own. Also, Joe Swick is in town so we're making him Somm.
