We’ve always celebrated cassoulet. Sometimes in October, sometimes in January. Last year we even had a Cassoulet War in February, with chefs competing against each other for trophies! To us, winter is cassoulet season. Or at least it’s an excuse to eat lots of cassoulet.
That’s why we are so excited about National Cassoulet Day. This year Chase’s Calendar of Events is recognizing it as an official holiday on January 9, thanks to our friend Chef Philippe Bertineau and the team at Benoit in NYC. Check the hashtag #NationalCassouletDay on social media to follow al the action. Join D’Artagnan and over 30 restaurants in New York City as we celebrate this iconic dish together.
You can also make cassoulet at home with our recipe kit. It’s not as complicated as you think. If you can sear sausages in a pan, and cook beans, you are pretty well set with the necessary skills. Scan the recipe here.
