I've been going to France with my family since I was little, and I still go a lot now. One of my favourite things about it is obviously the food (and the wine!) We do a lot of cooking whilst we are out there, and cassoulets are one of my favourites.
This is a gorgeous dish cooked by mon Pere.
Fry some chopped onions and plenty of garlic. When soft add a tin of tomatoes, a generous amount of herbe de Provence and Sel de Camargue (rock salt will also do), a squeeze of tomato puree and half a cup of water.. Allow to simmer briefly then stir in a tin of butter beans and flageolet beans.
Then add the cod (though haddock works just as well) - this can either be individual portions of the fish or diced fish, whichever you prefer.
Leave on a low heat for 20-30 mins, until the fish is cooked through.
Serve with french beans and crusty bread.
Merci Papa, tres bien! x
