ON SUNDAY: April 3rd, COCHON 555 THE MAIN EVENT! Porc lovers will gather at Ritz-Carlton South Beach as they play host to the 8th annual Cochon555 Tour as it stops in Miami. This culinary competition features five notable chefs going head-to-head with five heritage breed pigs from nose-to-tail. In addition to the chefs whipping up the most creative dishes to win votes from a hungry audience, Cochon555 will also feature five winemakers, five barkeeps competing with punches, a selection of artisan cheeses, five sommeliers, oysters, tartar bar, Perfect Manhattan and 1942 Margarita Experiences, a Tiki Bar, a Heritage Rum Cart and much more to round out the perfect porcine experience. Cochon555 could expand the walls to accommodate more ticketed guests but have decided to max out and just sell a mere 200 tickets so guests can rack up intimate and interactive experiences with notable chefs and artisan producers. Best yet, VIP guests get an additional 60 minutes of flavor-packed action.
