Everyone who has ever had cassoulet knows just how deliciously comforting this traditional French dish is. It has beautiful French beans, various cuts of meat, herbs, lovely aromatics, fat, and so much more served in a single pot that’s oozing with so much goodness. It can also be a bit intimidating to make, not just because it takes so much time to cook, but also because it’s got loads of nuances. On top of that, almost everyone has their own version of it.
That said, there are a couple of rules that one can follow to ensure that their cassoulet comes out delicious each time, every time. In this video by D’Artagnan, celebrity chefs Andy Knudson, Laetitia Rouabah, Tom Colicchio, Pierre Landet, Eric Rupert, Daniel Boulud, Elizabeth Falkner, and Hélène Darroze show everyone what these are.
The 133-second video is a teaser for D’Artagnan’s upcoming Cassoulet War, an annual tradition that, for the first time in seven years, the brand is taking online. Happening on March 22, the event has been carrying on a competitive French tradition between villages.
Attendees of the event can expect a lot of things, including: debates over nuances of cassoulet preparation like the addition of sausages, game birds, tomato paste, and breadcrumbs, and; renowned guests giving out personal tips and tricks that will help attendees improve their own cassoulet recipes.
As per Cassoulet War tradition, it is also very likely that the chefs will get into heated arguments all in the name of proving their cassoulet’s superiority. But never worry as all these are part of what makes this event so fun and exciting.
D’Artagnan’s Cassoulet War will take place on March 22 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM and is open to anyone with internet access.
