You can also find Valrhona chocolate ( my favorite ! ) at Whole Foods…
You should also check online http://www.levillage.com They sell some great french style sausages that you could use in your cassoulet…I love their andouillettes/andouilles sausages made with tripes ( sweet just like back in France ) and also their blood sausages ! It’s a bit expensive to ship as it has to be 2nd air and you cannot buy a lot and freeze them…so if you want to order and share the shipping let me know 🙂
Keep the good work !

Oh, that is a neat site! We got excited about the sausages you mentioned and looked into where else they might sell them. Other than at farmer’s markets in the Bay Area, there are only a few sites that sell them. One of them is Euro Food Depot — which we had never heard of, but it is located in Sorrento Valley. They are open to the public on Sat, so we’ll let you know how it goes!
