these train tracks
Since then, our family has been back to France several times - eating our way across the country with a deep appreciation for the people, culture and philosophy of taking ones time to cook and enjoy a meal from start to finish with friends and family.

|A lovely and aromatic duck and sausage cassoulet - superbe!|
|Plated - Cranberry beans in a savory sauce|
|Je suis une fille heureuse|
The recipes for the duck cassoulet and flan are extremely lengthy and detailed, so I did not include them (it would have taken me hours to re-type them). However, if anyone is interested in getting them, I'd be happy to forward them to you electronically.
Final Assessment: I loved this meal. It was savory and aromatic and the cranberry beans were out of this world. The apricot flan was delicate, light and perfect. I'd like to make it again with the persimmon when they're in season. A+
