Miami is Getting Piggy With It!

C555NYC 10FEB2013press-8

Cochon 555 rides into Miami this weekend!  It’s the fifth anniversary of the one-of-a-kind traveling culinary competition and tasting event, created to promote sustainable farming of heritage breed pigs. It’s going down this Sunday, April 21 at the Four Seasons Hotel Miami, where the pork-centric tour will gather together five chefs, five pigs and five wineries. Miami is part of a ten city tour, with upcoming dates in Chicago and Los Angeles.  I simply. CAN.NOT.WAIT.

This year,  the competing chefs are Aaron Brooks(Four Seasons Hotel Miami); Timon Balloo (Sugarcane Raw Bar); Jeffrey McInnis(Yardbird); David Thomas(The Bazaar) and Cesar Zapata(The Federal).  And eating is not all–guests will be treated to an epic pork feast alongside wines from five small family-owned wineries.  Twenty judges and 400 guests help decide the winning chef, who is then crowned the Prince of Pork and will compete against other regional winners at the finale Grand Cochon event at the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen on June 16th. Also included in the evening is a preview of the new Heritage BBQ event in which Conor Hanlon of The Dutch will roll out a serious family meal – an additional whole pig cooked barbecue-style!
