COCHON Heritage FIre

Attend Cochon 555 in St, Helena, California to experience 5 amazing chefs, 5 pigs and 5 winemakers prepare over 11 tons of heritage pork in a “nose-to-tail” culinary competition.
This year’s competing chefs include: Host Chef Patrick Clark of The Culinary Institute of America, Kelly McCown of Goose & Gander, Jason Kupper of The Thomas, Cindy Pawlcyn of Mustards Grill and Dustin Valette of Dry Creek Kitchen. The five chefs, champions to the pig, will battle it out in a friendly competition by preparing a maximum of six dishes each created from one whole heritage breed pig to win votes from a crowd of hungry gourmands and celebrated judges. In celebration of the tour’s 6th anniversary Dave Budworth of Marina Meats will butcher a pig for the audience, and for the first time at the event, a group of students under the guide of Larry Forgione of Conservatory for American Food Studies and will prepare an additional whole pig in an late-night Asian Speakeasy style before dessert and the awards ceremony. The winner will go on to compete in the Grand Cochon at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen in June for bragging rights as the “King or Queen of Porc” and a four-day wine experience to Rioja, Spain’s most prominent wine region.”
