This is a bit of a cheat, not really cooking at all, unless you count boiling the beans and the quail's eggs. Traditionally it is regarded as a lunchtime filler for hungry workers in the fields, probably washed down with a jug of robust local wine.
A delicious French dish which would make a great snack or starter.
