Cassoulet – Bistro Vue – Melbourne Picture

Cassoulet - Bistro Vue

A fantastic cassoulet with tender haricot blanc beans and small chunks of a smoky salted pork.

I made this once, and it was a lot of work, but the results were very good!

Another excellent lunch at Bistro Vue. Last year Bistro Vue Express Lunch was good, so we decided we’d go back for more. There was a 2 course set menu with no options, but it did include tea and coffee this year.
