Personal tips

The more your cassoulet simmer, the better it will get. You can even prepare it the day before because the next day, it will be tastier.

If your stoneware casserole dish is not big enough, you can spread the mixture in a second one.

A dry red wine is highly recommended with your Cassoulet !
