Cassoulet Cookoff

The Hapless Gourmands show

Summary: What could be more French than that creamy white-bean and meat stew called cassoulet? And what could be more American than a cook-off? We try out two recipes - a traditional, long-simmering, goose-fat-filled French one and a shortcut-laden American one - for the classic French comfort food on our friends. The engaged couple are inspired to discuss politics, knitting, and how they met.
