BUTCHER COMPETITION COMING SOON!





COCHON 555 BUTCHERING COMPETITION powered by Zagat

This year, COCHON 555 is host a national butcher competition throughout the 10 US Tour events. The goal, to provide a ZERO EXCUSE to a ZERO WASTE movement. How does this tie into COCHON 555, an event all about whole animal utilization? First, we will deliver ten [10] photo essays at the conclusion of the tour. Second, each photo essay will be posted online where the national community (chefs, butchers, processors, friends and peers) can learn from their peers and vote for the best submission. What equals the best submission? The winning essay will outline a profitable approach to in-house processing of whole animals, and utilizing the animal for profit. The result would create a focused ZERO WASTE message and an education tool for the industry and good food community. We hope the passion of today’s cutting champions will inspire buyers, kitchens and up and coming retail shops to support the buying of whole animal heritage species from responsible farmers.
