How Eventful: Cochon 555 Celebrates Five Years in Miami

C555NYC 10FEB2013press-4We have delicious news! 2013 marks the fifth anniversary of Cochon 555, a one-of-a-kind culinary competition and tasting. Created to promote the sustainable farming of heritage breed pigs, the traveling event will once again stop in Miami on Sunday, April 21. The Four Seasons Hotel Miami will play host to five chefs, five pigs, and five wineries for a truly unique event that celebrates the tradition of nose-to-tail cooking, diversity, and farm to food eating.

And the chef line-up consists of…Aaron Brooks (Four Seasons Hotel Miami), Timon Ballo (Sugarcane Raw Bar & Grill), Jeffrey McInnis (Yardbird), David Thomas (The Bazaar), and Cesar Zapata (The Federal). Guests will enjoy a truly epic pork feast alongside wines from small, family-owned wineries. Twenty judges on site and 400 guests will help decide who is crowned the Prince of Pork.

We were lucky enough to attend Cochon 555 last year and it was a really fun and filling foodie experience. From Whole Pig Head Tortellini to Pork Belly Anticucho, we tasted pork-centric dishes like no other. It was so impressive to see how creative the chefs got when it came to using the entire pig. We’ll be there again this year so stay tuned on Twitter and Instagram for live updates!

Tickets are available at www.cochon555.com – $125 for general admission and $200 for VIP. See you there!
