Had some inkling what the birthday package Kate sent might be when I saw the size and weight of the box. Shades of cassoulet! I’ve been salivating over one of these babies for awhile. Thinking of breaking it in with a late summer favorite, Eggplant and Lentil Stew with Pomegranate Molasses. This Turkish recipe calls for what seems like an insane amount of olive oil, but the stovetop cooking melts the eggplant into it and melds all the flavors.
