What: For those who partake in the yearly event, waiting 364 days can seem longer than waiting four years for the winter Olympics. A dish from the south of France consisting of slowly cooked meats and white beans, Lucques’s cassoulet gathered such a large following when it was first introduced that it became an annual traddition. Suzanne Goin Caroline Styne offer a classic version this weekend, featuring duck and pork confit with house-made garlic sausage and white beans. The hearty meal starts with a Roquefort and walnut salad and concludes with a Gascon almond cake with roasted apples and prune-armagnac ice cream.
