I just ate my first cassoulet. It was one of the most satisfying things I have ever eaten in my life. Maybe it was the cold. Maybe it was because I had a light lunch today. Those factors probably played into it. But there's no doubt that there was something intrinsic to the dish that made it so memorable.

This particular version from Le Singe Vert had beans, sausage, slab bacon, salami, ham, and duck confit. At first I thought it was just the beans, duck, and sausage. But I kept uncovering more stuff as I ate. It was awesome.
