This Weekend: Cochon 555 Hits Philly


Just a reminder for those of you who haven’t yet finalized your Memorial Day Weekend plans. Cochon 555–the annual pork pig-out event–is coming to Philly on Sunday, May 25. We’re talking 1,000 pounds of heritage pork, being prepared by five of the best chefs in the city, for a competition which will culminate in one of them being crowned King of the Pigs (or something like that) and get them a slot to compete at the Grand Cochon happening at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen.

But pork-based cooking competitions are not the only draw here. There’s also going to be booze and cheese and cocktail contests and ice cream and some dude wandering around just handing out slices of prosciutto (which should be a feature at any truly great party). And best yet, there are still some tickets available. So if you’re a serious pork addict and want to try and eat your fill this weekend, you know what to do. All the details and ticketing information can be found through the link below.
