There are three standard varieties of the cassoulet. They are called Castelnaudary, Toulouse, and Carcassonne. Anatole France, the great French literary figure of the nineteenth century, was a devotee of the Castelnaudary. But I prefer the type prepared in Carcassonne. It has everything the others have plus a substantial slab of lamb. It is a real meal in a dish!
