Cochon 555 Tour Stops in Miami

Created in 2008 in response to the lack of education around heritage breed pigs, Cochon555 is a nose-to-tail culinary tour dedicated to supporting family farmers and educating chefs and diners about the agricultural importance of utilizing Old World livestock. Cochon 555 works with every type of restaurant and bar imaginable – Mom-and-Pop, farm-to-table, BBQ, Michelin star – and our participating chefs all share one core value: they source products responsibly. The 2017 culinary tour starts in New York City and culminates with the finale, Grand Cochon. Grand Cochon spotlights the ‘Best 3 Bites’ from all Cochon555 tour competition cities. 14 chefs cook 14 pigs in a head-to-tail, winner-takes-all showdown. The winner is crowned “Queen or King of Porc”. The decadent ticket features all-in tasting of caviar, oysters, cheese, wines, beers, cider, spirits, and more.

Cochon 555 stops in Miami on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach. The 2017 competing chefs are:

Chef Clark Bowen and Chef Rick Mace of db Bistro Moderne & Café Boulud Palm Beach  Contemporary French

Chef Tito Vargas of The Bazaar by José Andrés – Modern Spanish with a Twist

Chef Paula DaSilva of Artisan Beach House – Bold New American Cooking

Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog of gastroPod – Elevated Global Street Foods

Chef John Gallo and Rene Reyes of Pinch Kitchen – Freestyle American Cuisine

A portion of all proceeds will go to Cochon555’s sister charity, Piggy Bank – a pig farming sanctuary. Launched in 2015 by Cochon555 founder Brady Lowe, Piggy Bank is a pig farming sanctuary. Harboring a Noah’s Ark-worthy selection of heritage breeds, it provides free genetics and access to shared business plans to emerging family farms. Piggy Bank aims to change the future of food by creating a community in which small farmers can learn about safer, more responsible practices and benefit from the sharing of genetics, livestock, and the very information needed to thrive as small businesses. The Piggy Bank farm, to be located in Missouri, raises heritage breed pigs to be gifted to communities, while building a model of agricultural transparency.
