COCHON 555

Mark your calendar for Sunday, May 31!  Cochon 555 - Washington, D.C. "5 pigs, 5 chefs, 5 winemakers" at Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C.

Cochon 555 is the only national chef competition promoting heritage pigs and breed diversity.  Watch as I compete against other area chefs, including RJ Cooper (Vidalia), Nicholas Stefanelli (Mio), Jamie Leeds (Commonwealth Gastropub) and John Manolatos (Cashion's East Place) for the title of "Prince of Porc."  We will each prepare a heritage breed hog from head to toe.  Guests and professional judges will determine the winner based on creative, classic preparation and overall best flavor.

The event also raises awareness for ICompassion, an organization that works to reduce the number of individuals who die from kidney disease each year through providing support with a national live donor registry.
