Where is it from the cassoulet? Well, that's a really good question because depending on who you ask, you're gonna get a different answer. I mean, in general, I think everybody agrees that the cassoulet which you know we need maybe to stay exactly what is it?
International food and travel writer Sylvie Bigar was born in Geneva, Switzerland, and is based in New York City. She is fluent in French, English, and Italian. Sylvie co-authored Chef Daniel Boulud's definitive and personal cookbook, Daniel: My French Cuisine. Sylvie's many adventures have led her to explore the childhood home and native French province of Colette, her favorite author; the apple orchards of Ireland, the banks of the Oum Er-Rbia River in Morocco, the remote Swiss village of Mund with its seductive saffron, the Austro-Hungarian culinary revival in Prague, and Southwestern France on a long-time quest for the perfect cassoulet.
