The more flavorful and much more intense predecessor to pork and beans, cassoulet is as comforting as food gets. Plus it's "gluten free." It's a shield against a depressingly cold, snowblown winter's day. And this week, it's on special at some of the city's finest eateries.

Join Kitchen Little in their quest to bring the beany and meaty classic French casserole to the masses. This week KL are teaming up with Alana's, L'Antibes and the Worthington Inn to offer daily specials on the hearty and outrageously delicious stew.

Check with individual restaurants for deals, but definitely get out and grab a bowl.
