An invitation to Sunday Dinner Club is something to cherish, but an invitation to experience SDC's famous cassoulet dinner is culinary bliss! I brought Aim with me to join in with a bunch of other fabulous folks to settle in for a cozy dinner and more than a few sips of wine.
The good people behind SDC have been making their Chicago inspired cassoulet for ten years! And that kind of dedication leads to perfection. No question, both the crouquettes and winter citrus salad were memorable ofering, but the star of the evening was the warming bowl of slow cooked amazingness. If someone had tried to take my bowl of cassoulet before I licked it clean I would have physically defended my territory; it was THAT good.

Applause for the masterminds behind a memorable evening and Honey Butter Fried Chicken To Go
And yes, that meant we had to save room for fried chicken after falling into a cassoulet coma.
Too much amazing!
