2015 Miami Cochon 555Sunday, April 19, 5pm-9pm – Loews Miami Beach Hotel, 1601 Collins Ave, Miami Beach

Cochon 555, the country’s most talked about culinary competition arrived in Miami with an epic 3-day feast, held at Loews Miami Beach Hotel as the official host of the weekend, showcasing the best bites, chefs and who’s who of the good food movement. The goal was to celebrate family farms, heritage breed pigs and tilt the scales to favor today’s emerging chef community struggling to pay premium prices for safer, more flavorful food raised by real farmers.

Richard Hales of Sakaya Kitchen, Jason Pringle of DB Bistro Moderne, Lindsay Autry of Fin & Feather, Todd Erickson of Haven Gastro Lounge, and Xavier Torres of Drunken Dragon. Judges were Aaron Brooks of Edge Steak & Bar, Giovanny Gutierrez of Chat Chow TV, Jose Mendin of Pubbelly, Conor Hanlon of the Dutch, Norman Van Aken, Jamie DeRosa of Tongue & Cheek, Danny Serfer of Mignonette, the Miami Ink guys, Chowfather. The heritage breed pigs prepared were raised on local farms including South Florida Heritage Farm, FKS Farms, Maverick Meats, Palmetto Creek Farms and The Florida Fresh Meat Company. Lindsay Autry was crowned “Princess of Porc,” Top Chef alum and former Michelle Bernstein protegée.
