Description Recipes

We were approached by Paula Wolfert (she has used several of our pots in the past) to see if we could make a cassole similar to one she had bought in France years ago. She was updating her famous book, "The Cooking of Southwest France" and needed a pot large enough to easily hold the whole 22 cup cassoulet recipe (over 5 quarts) and shaped to properly bake this wonderful dish. So here it is...about 13 inches across the rim, 2 handles and about 8 inches tall. It's a big pot! And it just about matches the original from France that Paula has pictured on the front of her cookbook.
Like a traditional cassole, the bottom outside of the piece is left unglazed, regardless of your glaze choice. Use this pot for more than cassoulet, try any baked dish for entertaining company. Think stew, chili, or any other type of casserole. To see the whole process of making Paula's cassoulet, visit the Clay Coyote Blog where we posted one of our New Year's Cassoulet experiences! Here are a couple of good links about cassoulets:http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/toulouse-style-cassoulet

This winter, 2014, we have had way more orders on cassoles than we ever expected, (and due to losses in making them), there is a several week delay in our ability to get them made and shipped, so please order early.
Tom's making them as quickly as possible. It takes at least 4 weeks to dry them because of their size, and Betsy can only fit 4 per firing in the kiln. Your patience is really appreciated.

A joy to look at. January 19, 2015
Reviewer: Big CC fan from Washington, DC United States  
I purchased  a cassole in the tomato color. The pot is very beautiful. A work of art. I will be making my first Cassoulet this weekend and will let you know how well the pot works. Tom & Betsy are wonderful.
