About Cochon 555 Event

Food.Wishes's picture

Cochon555 was held by Taste Network and I want to thanks them for putting on such a fun event, and for helping support the effort to raise awareness about heritage breed pigs. All five chefs did an amazing job honoring the meat with creative preparations using every inch of the animal, literally.
Peter McNee, from Poggio Trattoria, was declared "Prince of Porc" by a combined vote from a panel of judges, as well as a poll of the guests. Any of the chefs could have won, and all together, according to my count, there were over 60 separate pork preparations!
Since foodies can not live by pork alone, there was also a great selection of wine by Krupp Brothers, Hirsch Vineyards, Elk Cove Winery, Arcadian Winery, K Vintners/ Charles Smith's Wines, Chase Cellars and (my favorite) Ghost Horse World.
