There's no doubt about it, cassoulet is one of France's favorite dishes for good reason: it's generous, comforting and convivial. To enjoy a good cassoulet in Paris, here are the best addresses!

Cassoulet is an emblematic dish of French cuisine, originating in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France. A comfort dish par excellence, it's made with white beans, pork, mutton or duck, and sausages, all slow-cooked in a clay dish called a"cassole".

Thehistory of cassoulet goes back many centuries. According to legend, it was created by French soldiers in the Middle Ages to feed themselves during the sieges of the Hundred Years' War. They used what they had on hand - white beans, pork and sausage - and cooked them in earthenware pots known as cassoles.

Cassoulet became a popular dish throughout France and is now considered a symbol of French cuisine. However, there are several cassoulet recipes, each with its own ingredients and variations. The original Languedoc cassoulet recipe is the best known, and consists of white beans, pork, mutton or duck, and sausages.

The Toulouse cassoulet recipe features duck confit and Toulouse sausages, while the Castelnaudary cassoulet recipe stands out for its goose confit, pork shank or shoulder, sausage and pork rind. Quite simply, these three towns have been battling it out for decades to set the real cassoulet recipe in stone!

But in any case, cassoulet remains a high-energy, country-style dish that's great to savor as soon as the mercury drops. A guaranteed delight!

One of France's favorite dishes, cassoulet is often served on special occasions or at family gatherings, but it's also very popular in brasseries and French restaurants in Paris! So, if you're looking for comforting and generous cassoulets in Paris, this is the place to go!
