THE MOST TALKED ABOUT CULINARY TOUR IN THE COUNTRY
Created in 2008 in response to the lack of education around heritage breed pigs, Cochon555 is a nose-to-tail culinary event dedicated to supporting family farmers and educating buyers about the agricultural importance of eating heritage breed pigs, some of which are on critical watch lists. The meat they produce is recognized for its superior flavor, texture, appearance, and nutritious qualities. At all events, we source only the highest quality ingredients and products available.
Cochon555 is a theater for innovative food and drink experiences. At any given event, over a hundred-plus cooks, chefs, restaurant and bar owners, renowned sommeliers and barkeeps, can be found working in concert to create luxurious moments. We work with every type of restaurant and bar imaginable – from farm-to-table to Michelin star - and all participating chefs share one core value: they source products responsibly. Our goal is to buy and promote the "best heritage breed pigs" from farmers doing it the "right way". Why? Because heritage breed pigs can't be raised in commodity settings.
The epic culinary tour starts in Dallas in early-February and culminates with the finale, Grand Cochon late fall in Chicago, marking our first decade. Cochon555 aims to create moments of inspiration, and to engender discussion and action - to buy, to cook, shop and donate in the name of a safe, honest, and delicious. Bottom line, we are educating the nation one bite at a time and creating a safer food future to be shared with our children. Your support benefits our foundation project, Piggy Bank, a start-up farm in Missouri that serves as a kickstarter for new family farms and a safety net for those in the wake of a disaster (fire, flood, and disease). Please explore our website, watch a video and enjoy an all-inclusive ticketed event that directly supports the good food movement.
Sponsors create moments of inspiration, discussion and action - to buy, cook, shop - in the name of a safe, honest, and delicious.
