Sunday, January 8th: 4th Annual Cassoulet Cook-Off

4th Annual Cassoulet Cook-Off
Jimmy’s No. 43 (43 East 7th St., Manhattan)
1-4pm
$20, proceeds to benefit the Greenmarkets’ Hurricane Farm Relief

We love a good cassoulet, and the drop in temperature this week makes Sunday’s Cassoulet Cook-off a well timed event. Competing chefs will include:

Green Brown Orange’s Alejandro Alcocer, whose cafe/catering company focuses on simplicity of flavors, organic and biodynamic foods from local, seasonal farms;
Jessica Wilson, formerly of aVoce and Prune;
Hadley Schmitt of Northern Spy, the East Village Restaurant/Pub that has a menu built around seasonality and quality, whenever possible using locally grown, caught, and produced ingredients;
Edi and the Wolf’s Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban will bring some Austrian flare to the cassolet cook-off;
Phil Conlon of The Highliner Restaurant;
and, of course, Jimmy’s No. 43, which will be offering cassoulet on the menu all next week.
