“The iconic Southern French dish of white beans, duck and sausages, slow-cooked in its eponymous earthenware crock, is one of winter’s ultimate comfort-food dishes. Warm up with tastes of multiple versions at East Village gastropub Jimmy’s No. 43, where for the tenth year running, amateur and professional cooks alike compete to make the best version.”
“Jimmy Carbone…one of New York’s most enthusiastic cassoulet champions, takes a more lenient approach. “I look at the old Time Life cookbooks from the sixties, and it’s like, ‘Oh, New England baked beans,’ ” he said on a recent Sunday, at Jimmy’s No. 43’s sixth-annual cassoulet cook-off…The cook-off competitors stood over seaming buffet trays, doling cassoulet into small plastic bowls. A number of flagrant, if delicious, digressions from protocol were in evidence.”
