Cassoulet is first and foremost a question of tradition. Of skills handed down from generation to generation. This family dish must be tasted and savoured. Follow the Cassoulet Route and meet the men and women who help give it such a great taste. Our farmers, potters, restaurant-owners, winemakers and livestock breeders will give you a warm welcome.
