We are very excited to be part of the COCHON 555 tour this year. Although we’re trying to keep it a secret from our vegetarian winemaker, the rest of the crew is elated!
Don’t miss COCHON 555, where a group of chefs will each prepare a heritage breed hog from head to toe in a friendly competition. Guests and professional judges will determine a winner based on creativity, utilization and overall best flavor. The winner will be crowned the “Prince of Porc”. In addition, five selected winemakers will showcase their wines.
COCHON 555 is a tribute to heritage breeds, local chefs and family-owned wineries. For the competition, each 125 pound heritage pig can be braised, grilled, pressed, pickled, rubbed, smoked, seared, sauced, spiced, injected, marinated, cured or otherwise prepared. Guests of the event will experience the chef creations during a 2.5 hour stand-up reception and have the opportunity to vote for the winner. Chef stations will alternate with winemaker tables.
The purpose of COCHON 555 is to promote heritage pigs and breed diversity in local and national communities. The winner of this event will be asked to compete at Grand Cochon during the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen.

BOSTON: Sunday, March 28
