Cassoulet War: Participating Chefs

Our third annual Cassoulet War at the Kimpton Hotel Eventi in NYC will feature a record number of cassoulets to try!

On the 20th of February, 20+ chefs will assemble, armed with only pots of cassoulet, and do battle against each other. The awards go to the Most Authentic, Most Daring and the Most Popular Cassoulets. Our panel of esteemed judges will select the first two, and the guests will vote for the most popular. Join us! Tickets and details here.
