A dinner series bringing together chefs, world-renowned winemakers and beverage experts to create a multi-course, interactive dining experience. A five-course culinary extravaganza celebrating responsible agriculture with a welcome reception followed by a seated dinner.
COCHON 555 takes over the city with the help of great farmers and notable chefs to celebrate heritage breed pigs and set the course for a safer food system. This epic one-of-a-kind culinary weekend features an epic Friday ‘Late Nite Asian Speakeasy’ Dinner to kick-off the festivities, followed by a ‘Chef’s Course’ Dinner on Saturday and concludes with the main event on Sunday. Cochon 555 is the country’s most hyper-local culinary competition where five top chefs are challenged to create a winning menu from a locally raised heritage breed pig.
The weekend includes a local chef hosting a guest chef dinner on Saturday night before the event. The Cochon 555 “Chef’s Course Dinner Series” has been selling out all over the country. The evening begins with a welcome reception followed by a five course seated dinner paired with wines. The three hour culinary experience includes thoughtful canapés and introductions of each course by the city’s most prominent chefs ($125 all inclusive). The dinner is an extension of the Cochon US Tour, and their loyalty program called Chef’s Course, which benefits Piggy Bank, a 501c3. The dinner series is a national series featuring 50 of the nation’s emerging chefs.
Guests should plan to arrive at 6:30 p.m. for canapés designed by each chef. Immediately followed by a sit-down, five-course dinner at 7:30 p.m. that emphasizes high-quality, local ingredients in the unique dinner theme that pays homage to the flavor kings and queens that pair perfectly with sleek, elegant and stunning wines.
The participating chefs will showcase their skills in the kitchen as diners enjoy a course from each showcasing their distinct culinary approach for an unparalleled experience. Throughout the evening guests will be guided through the dinner with a chance to mingle and enjoy the night with the friends and family of Team Cochon.
