Jimmy's No. 43 in NYC is hosting it's 5th Annual Cassoulet Cook-off on Sunday, January 13th to benefit Grow NYC Greenmarket program. Chefs and amateur chefs like myself have been tweaking our recipes for this meat and bean laden event. In years past some have even made fish and vegetarian versions.
Cassoulet is a famous dish that originated in South west France. There are many Cassoulet aficionados who proclaim what a true Cassoulet is and many verbal wars have been had. I have met a few of you over the years and enjoy hearing what you consider your perfect Cassoulet. Last year I placed 3rd for judges award and tied 2nd for people's choice. We will see what this year has in store.
If you are still contemplating on starting your New Years Resolution of losing a few pounds you may want to wait until January 14th.
(some ingredients I have sourced this year are: Duck from Crescent Duck Farm and Micro-Greens from Koppert Cress out east on Long Island and Pork from Flying Pigs Farm at the Union Square Greenmarket in NYC).
Open to the public. Tickets are available at Noon ($30 at the door) Cash Only.
Date: Sunday, January 13th, Time: 1 - 3pm, Location: Jimmy's No. 43 (43 East 7th St. btw 2nd and 3rd Ave)
