Mr Beak's Original Cassoulet


Nothing warms you more in Autumn than a hearty casserole. This tasty Mr Beak's casserole is a take on a traditional French Cassoulet which is normally cooked in a cassole, a deep, round earthenware pot with slanting sides. If you don't have one of these handy the dish fares just as well in a slow cooker. Assemble in the morning before work and come home to a medley of delicious flavours.
