COCHON555

EXPERIENCE THE BEST SUNDAY EVENT

COCHON555 - LOS ANGELES

At the heart of all Cochon555 events lies a culinary competition of five local chefs each presenting one whole, heritage breed pig to promote local family farming. Think of a 40-course gourmet tasting menu taken standing up. Spend Sunday afternoon feasting on 1500 pounds of heritage breed pork and ethically sourced foods during our signature three-hour experience. A portion of all sales will benefit our sister charity Piggy Bank.

General Admission is our signature three-hour experience filled with culinary wonderment! Feast on culinary creations, enjoy endless rounds of beverages -- and vote for your favorite bite of the day. From farm-to-table to Michelin star - all participating chefs share one core value: they source locally. If you like tasty pig, Cochon555 buys 1500 pounds of the "best breeds" from farmers doing it the "right way" and we serve up an intimate experience for 450 guests (you do the math).

Splurge on the VIP area and get an extra hour of extravagance. Get up close to the chefs and farmers who made it all happen, without waiting in line. Chefs will serve a preview of two dishes during VIP, enjoy exclusive access to the Punch Kings (whole bottle tequila punch competition featuring top barkeeps), and sip allocated wines and spirits that don’t last the entire event.

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.
