The Fete Du Cassoulet

It's under-way, the biggest cassoulet event in the country. Eating a very rich haricot bean cassoulet during the hottest time of the year. The festival in Castelnaudary goes on all week ending next Sunday. There is a Beatles cover band and water jousting on the Canal du Midi, amongst many other things, with lots of food and wine stalls plus various others selling tins of cassoulet. You can book on line here http://www.castelnaudary-tourisme.com/html/1-15184-Fete-du-Cassoulet.php for a very nice meal in a marquee - providing you like the famous cassoulet of course. I do but it can get a bit Autan-ish. :-)

We have all been melting for several weeks now with temperatures up in the mid to high 30's, so the water jousting might just be enough to tempt a few people to join in, whether the organisers want them to or not.  It looks like it is set to continue through the rest of the week at least, so investing in one of those hats that looks like a parasol might be a good idea.

Anyway we can't complain about the heat and sunshine, that is after all what most of us came here for. I bet there are a few people in the UK that would give their right arm for a bit of that right now. Well except those enjoying the pool and sunshades at Le Moulin. What a great couple of weeks to come on holiday.
