Les Lices

Lde Lices is an unassuming spot inside the Carcassonne fortress with little ambiance, rickety furniture and brusque service. Yes...but...what a cassoulet! This near-perfect rendition featured perfect creamy beans, a deeply rich and flavorful broth, delicious duck confit and the piece de resistance: perfect, crunchy chunklets of pork belly. I was too full to finish the dish but picked out every last piece of "ventreche". With a perfectly golden toasted top coating - you might think this was the perfect cassoulet. Except for one fault - a thoroughly tasteless sausage. Unless I was imagining things - it was the exact same tasteless sausage that let down the wonderful Cassoulet at Comte Roger. I think I might write them a sausage letter.

9 Lices Jean Moulin, 81000 Albi, France
