The annual Rock the House event benefiting The Oak Park Regional Housing Center and the School of Rock scholarship fund is one of my favorite nights of the year! Five chefs and ten home-brewers, hundreds of eager community members and some kick-ass musicians gather to support of duo of worthy causes. What could be better than that?
This year I opted to offer a deconstructed version of cassoulet to our event attendees. The dish featured braised rosemary white beans, pork shoulder, andouille, chicken thigh confit, mustard, thanksgiving crunchies and microgreens. I have to say it was a hit!
I have to say the best part of the night is hanging with all my fav peeps! Major props go out to my Leifer for helping me serve up more than 200 portions of cassoulet. He is an expert garnisher to say the least! Rock the House is one of the best parties in our village!
