MANILA, Philippines — Now that the holidays are over, you will surely miss all those festive dishes that used to adorn your dining table.

But if you are looking for a new recipe idea that will provide the same luxurious taste and vibe but is at the same time healthy, you might like Cassoulet Toulousain, a classic French bean and sausage stew that originates from the Toulouse region of France.

It was one of the dishes prepared by Chef Robbie Ripalda of The Domaine in Silang, Cavite, when the San Miguel Pure Foods Culinary Center put together a special Le Réveillon: A French White Christmas dinner event for the media several years ago. It is a winner!
