Cochon555 is a nose-to-tail competition for a cause in which five all-star chefs cook five heritage breed pigs for a chance to be crowned the “Princess/Prince of Porc” – selected by both audience and judges. Chefs from DB Bistro Moderne, The Bazaar by Jose Andres, Artisan Beach House, Pinch Kitchen, and Jimmy’z Kitchen will be competing in the Miami event. In addition to the pork dishes, guests will enjoy other chef-curated tastings and sip on a variety of boutique wines, craft cocktails, and artisanal brews.
To kick off the event a special dinner hosted by Jose Mendin of The Pubbelly Group will take place on Saturday, March 25 at 7:00PM, at Pubbelly Noodle Bar. Chef’s Course BESPOKE: An Evening of Culinary Modernity, will feature guest chefs Diego Oka of La Mar by Gaston Acurio at Mandarin Oriental and Michael Beltran of Ariete. The evening will take as its theme “Culinary Modernity,” with each chef creating one course that embodies their own conception of the night’s core ideas. The final course will be a group collaboration, in which all four chefs will cook one family-style course representative of what they believe to be modernity. Premium wine and cocktail pairings will accompany the five course meal following a pre-dinner cocktail reception with passed appetizers presented by House of Angostura. To close the evening, Chef Maria Orantes of Pubbelly Noodle Bar will prepare a pastry course featuring Perfect Puree of Napa Valley. Evan Benn of the Miami Herald, along with Piggy Bank founder Brady Lowe and Communications Director Robert McKeown will be in attendance as guides of sorts – our own culinary Virgils – illuminating for all in attendance the ideas which define our culinary time and inspire Cochon555 events. Tickets for the dinner are $125 and can be purchased online. Seats are $125 each, to purchase tickets visit link here or visit www.pubbelly.com.
