COCHON 555 “5 Chefs, 5 Pigs, 5 Winemakers”
SILVERADO RESORT 
NAPA, CALIFORNIA
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28th, 4:30 - 8 p.m.
($99 room rates available)

Don't miss COCHON 555, where a group of chefs will each prepare a heritage breed hog from head to toe in a friendly competition. Guests and professional judges will determine a winner based on creativity, utilization and overall best flavor. The winner will be crowned the “Prince of Porc”. In addition, five selected winemakers will showcase their wines. COCHON 555 is a tribute to heritage breeds, local chefs and family-owned wineries.

For the competition, each 125 pound heritage pig can be braised, grilled, pressed, pickled, rubbed, smoked, seared, sauced, spiced, injected, marinated, cured or otherwise prepared. Guests of the event will experience the chef creations during a 2.5 hour stand-up reception and have the opportunity to vote for the winner. Chef stations will alternate with winemaker tables. 

 The purpose of COCHON 555 is to promote heritage pigs and breed diversity in local and national communities. Additionally, we will be supporting the “Napa Fire Explorers”, a local youth vocational program.

It is recommended that attendees arrive on time for this event.
