There are a select number of dishes that are quintessentially French. Hailing from the South-West corner of France and a specialty of Toulouse, Cassoulet is one of these dishes. I will take a couple of weeks to gather the ingredients (some very traditional, others an American close cousin)and prepare the different components and finally put it all together. This dish is a labor of love. If you are not a meat eater, this one is not for you. Filled with several different cuts of Pork, Pork Sausage and house Confit Duck and wonderful beans, this is winter comfort food at its finest.
Aperitif with snacks while we get acquainted.
What started out a peasant hearty winter food with leftover bits of meat supplementing hearty beans, has morphed into one of France's most recognizable traditional meals. A pork Ragout is made, then the beans are cooked low and slow in that ragout and become silky. Finished with sausage and housemade Duck Confit. Un Delice!

This was the 3rd event I have had the pleasure of attending with Yolande. She never fails to amaze! The food is a step above the rest. The food, setting and people make for a fantastic and unforgettable evening. Can’t wait for the next event
The cassoulet was simply phenomenal - on par with what I've eaten in Toulouse. The homemade duck confit simply melted off the bone. The French-style salad with endives, watercress, and sickle pears was really light and lovely served after the cassoulet, which can be a pretty hearty meal. Enjoyed the French 75s as the cocktail of the evening and the wine pairing. The pineapple flambé was a fun way to finish the meal. Yolande is an excellent host and her food clearly made with love.
Delicious food and lovely ambiance. Everything was up tp our expectations. Being from France ourself, we felt like home. It was a charming evening with good company, excellent food and attention to details. C&G
The Bouillabaisse was fantastic! Well-seasoned with a delightful mix of fish, shrimp, clams, mussels, and potatoes - which was well-complemented by the Provençal rosé. Her renovated Reservoir Hill row home with vintage French décor affords a convivial atmosphere. But above all, Yolande was an attentive host and engaging storyteller, which made for a lovely evening with great conversation and excellent food. Would highly recommend!
Yolande is the sweetest, most down to earth host. She makes sure everyone is welcomed, well fed and makes sure that you aren’t Thirsty. I’m so glad I came to Yolande’s bouillabaisse dinner. Everything was fresh and flavorful. 10 out of 10. And will def return.
