"Cassoulet is not a recipe; it’s an argument between villages.”
– Chef Andre Daguin
We carry on that competitive French tradition with our third annual Cassoulet War in New York City.
On February 20th, 2017, chefs will battle for cassoulet supremacy at The Eventi Hotel. Join us to eat, drink and argue over which cassoulet is best.
Our esteemed judges will choose the Most Authentic and Most Daring cassoulet champion.
We need YOU to vote for the Most Popular!
Bring your appetite! This walk-around tasting includes 21 different cassoulets to try, and plenty of Madiran, Cahors and Armagnac to drink (war is a thirsty business).
The battle begins at 7:00 PM and continues until only one chef is left standing at 9:30 PM.
