Last night, the fine folks from Sunday Dinner hosted their 7th annual winter meat-extravaganza in the form of cassoulet. Cassoulet, to those unfamiliar, is a vegan’s worst nightmare, and a meat lovers sexiest dream. It is a very hearty stew-like dish that consists of beans as well as several types of meat, including lamb, beef, duck (and delicious duck fat), and bacon (last night’s bacon was from The Butcher and Larder, and holy GOD was it good). Christine and Josh, the chefs from Sunday Dinner, created a meat rave for our taste buds in 4 courses. My mouth is still coming down from the taste high.
Kevin and I invited his brother Brian and sister-in-law, Courtney, to drive down from Milwaukee to spend the evening with us at dinner amongst friends as a wedding gift- the two tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony this past July. We figured the legendary SDC cassoulet menu would be a great wedding gift- delicious food, delicious drinks, laughter and a great time spent together. I mean, aren’t those really the ingredients for happiness? Perfect.
