Somewhere in Toulouse at this very moment, potatoes are sputtering in goose fat, apricot cakes are rising in a warm oven, and soups are bubbling in big clay cassoles. This is the heart of French comfort-food country, a meat-and-potatoes paradise where foie gras is considered weeknight fare and cassoulet—that garlicky local stew with sausage and duck confit—is championed by an elected confrérie of chefs. Sure, the city’s pink-brick streets are lined with modern restaurants that run the gamut from taco joints to sushi bars, but it would be a shame to leave town without tasting these soul-warming classics that always have us coming back for seconds.—Benjamin Kemper
