How to make a hearty French cassoulet, step by step

This video shows you how to prepare a Cassoulet, a traditional bean and meat stew from the south of France.

To make it, broad white beans are soaked overnight, then slow-cooked in a tomato-based stock with pork rinds and cured ham. The beans are then layered with other meats and sausages, cooked in an earthenware pot – the ‘cassole’ – and finally topped with pieces of duck confit –  duck cured with salt, gently cooked in its own fat – before being served.
