Second-day cassoulet

Eastside Road, March 17, 2011—
WHAT, ONE WONDERS, would St. Patrick have thought of cassoulet. Well, pigs and Irishmen have been known to get along — there's a joke I've forgotten about an Irishman who takes his pig to a bar — and goose no doubt also has a place in the Irish kitchen. And beans are ubiquitous. So perhaps it's not a stretch.

In any case leftover cassoulet suited us fine tonight, with a green salad after. One cassoulet to go!
The rest of the Crozes-Hermitage, Domaine Philippe et Vincent Jaboulet, 2007: rather better for having stood a day in the pantry
