Cheese and Cassoulet : Madame Fromage



Madame Fromage has a delightful write-up involving French hot dish, a luscious cheese board and a nifty Italian wine.

Excerpt: Cheese and CassouletPosted by tdarlington on Saturday, March 17, 2012 · Leave a Comment Some people throw legendary dinner parties. Don’t you always want to be that person? Revered for the time you served 200 partridges atop foie gras-stuffed mini pumpkins? Or for the night you whipped up poutine at 2 a.m. for the whole neighborhood?Neither do I. I don’t have the nerves or stamina to prepare such epic meals. But I like to be there. I like to chronicle such events. And I like to bring the cheese. That’s why I was thrilled to swan-dive into my neighbor Larry’s cassoulet party on a recent Saturday. I don’t have the patience to make cassoulet– all those days of cooking wings and shanks – but I loved sitting at the table, breathing in the steam.

Corks popped. Tweens trooped in and out of the kitchen. Glasses smashed. And in other parts of the house, dogs barked and games echoed. It was one of those epic parties where a thousand things are happening all at once – wars, wails, wines – and yet nothing distracts from the food.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
