Enjoyed very much in this region Lot et Garonne Aquitaine, so much so that in some of the traditional markets a taster we being given out and enjoyed by all.

Enjoy watching how to make a traditional French pancake.

Lets not forget Rick Stein who enjoyed cooking the traditional Cassoulet whilst travelling through the Lot et Garonne down the canal du midi on his boat.

To quote Rick Stein..This hearty, meat-studded dish from Southwestern France is the ultimate one-pot meal.
