A Savoy tradition for many years, this is a walk around tasting of multiple interpretations of the great wintry dish from southwest France. Five chefs, five takes on pork and beans at its best, plenty of Cahors, winter greens and citrus sorbet to keep everyone’s palates refreshed and a roaring fire on the second floor. You’ll think you were at a country inn in Vermont instead of in Soho. This year’s participating chefs are Alex Raij of Txikito, Mike Laarhoven of Back Forty, Shanna Pacifico of Back Forty West, Nick Anderer of Maialino, and Tom Mylan of The Meat Hook. $65 for the meal and wine with a portion of the proceeds being donated to New Amsterdam Market, the public market project for artisanal producers in the old Fulton Fish Market area. Check out their website at http://www.newamsterdammarket.org/ for more info. The wine featured during the event is Hecht & Bannier Minervois 2009, supplied by Sud de France. Monday February 25th 2013 6:30pm – 9:30pm. Tickets are on sale at http://backfortynyc.com/events/the-cassoulet-festival-is-back/
