Cassoulet Day 2018

It’s National Cassoulet Day and we’re giving away a Cassoulet Kit to celebrate!

After the excitement of the holidays subsides and we settle into wintry January, we reach for comfort food and a bottle of (probably red) wine. The ultimate comfort food of Languedoc is Cassoulet, a delicious mess of pork, beans and duck confit baked together in a clay dish for 3 hours – and Cassoulet Day is coming up on January 9, 2018!



We’ve teamed up once again with D’Artagnan, purveyor of fine foods with roots in the South of France, to give away a Cassoulet Kit to one lucky winner! The kit comes complete with Haricot Tarbais beans, duck confit, duck & Armagnac sausage and the traditional clay bowl used to cook it all. Plenty of food for you and 12 of your closest friends, it’s perfect for a mid-winter dinner party – paired with plenty of Languedoc wine of course!

As an added bonus, from January 20th – 31st all entrants will receive a discount code for 25% off of D’Artagnan’s Cassoulet ingredients! Stay tuned.

Sweepstakes runs January 8 through January 19, 2018.
