Hyper-Local Culinary Competition Sets Course on Changing the Food System.
Cochon 555, the country’s most talked about culinary competition returns to San Francisco on April 12, 2015 to celebrate family farms, heritage breed pigs and today’s emerging chef community. Attendees of this one-of-a-kind culinary competition embark on a journey to the new hyper-local culinary landscape, one whole pig at a time. The tour is aligned with the modern-day good food movement — notable chefs, barrier-breaking women, artist-like butchers, spirited bartenders, top winemakers, brewers, distillers and brazen pastry talent working together to prepare an epic feast celebrating responsible family farming. Going on its seventh year, Cochon 555 is regarded as the nation’s most flavorful culinary event, from entry to exit, with each bite specially designed to win over the public.
This must-do culinary experience features five top chefs in a one-of-a-kind culinary competition featuring dishes prepared from locally-raised whole heritage breed pigs with endless wine, brews and spirits.
