Cassoulet for one?

free sample addict aka Tracy L | Oct 19, 2009 06:58 PM

I want to make Cassoulet, but my dilemma is that I don't know anyone I can invite over to enjoy it with me. They are either not as culinarily adventurous as I thought they would be or we are all hitting an age where the combination of meats and fats may send someone to a cardiologist. I am looking at recipes from Bourdain, Wolfert, CH (Will Owen I think) and possibly Julia Child. If I halve any of these recipes will it still be good? Or is cassoulet one of those recipes that doesn't translate well when halved? Lastly, I've never had cassoulet before so I am a little concerned I might not like it as much as I think I will (g-d forbid), therefore if I make a full recipe I may be courting disappointment. I figure if I make half a recipe there will be enough for leftovers and possibly freezing a portion or two. Thanks for your feedback.
