Roussillon The cuisine in Languedoc Roussillon is as diverse as the landscape. Meat lovers can get their kicks with Cassoulet, a south-west speciality. This dish, which typically consists of haricot beans, confit of goose or duck and sausage, is always a talking point in the three main areas that are Carcassonne, Toulouse and Castelnaudary. Combine this with a fruity wine from France’s largest wine making region and you have a recipe for happiness.
