Cochon555 events lies a culinary competition to promote family farming. Five local chefs are each given one whole, heritage breed pig and one week to prepare the entire 200 pound animal. The winner is decided between a People’s Vote and 24 Celebrity Judges, who then crown the winner, New York’s “Prince or Princess of Pork.” The winning chef advances to the year-end finale competition called Grand Cochon, to be held this year on October 1st in Chicago. Running in tandem to the culinary competition is the Somm Smackdown (rare and amazing wines paired with all dishes) and Punch Kings featuring five of the cities top barkeeps battling in whole-bottle competition. Included in your all-inclusive ticket is a special additon of sponsored bites and delights followed by a memorable performance by Kool Keith and DJ Lord of Public Enemy in a tribute to the infamous Dr. Octagon album.
