Anyone who's ever been to a Cochon 555 tasting can attest that it's a memorable evening. Each event provides pig-loving epicureans with a sampling of pork dishes served with wines from five different small wineries.
After tasting, guests and a panel of 20 judges vote for the winning local chef (the Prince or Princess of Porc) who will travel to the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen to compete in the finale for the title of King or Queen. Guests at our local tastings are also invited to feast off a whole roasted heritage breed pig, try some of the unconventional desserts (bacon ice cream, anyone?), and watch two butchers in a head to head cutting competition, featuring every last edible bit, from the snout to the hocks. Participants have the opportunity to eat well and be part of an amazing food and wine community while supporting sustainable agriculture.
For anyone following the local food trend, Cochon 555's tour is a great place to take part in the conversation and meet some of the up and coming ambassadors of the back to basics food movement. We're especially excited to have new and returning chefs joining us this year.
