2017 Miami Cochon555

Posted on: March 26th, 2017 by

2017 Miami Cochon555Sunday, March 26, 4pm-7:30pm – Ritz Carlton South Beach, 1 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach

Cochon555, the hyper-local festival with a flair for innovation, returns to Miami with its Heritage BBQ edition on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach. The promotion of global food cultures and family farming will be the central themes of the day. From winemakers and distillers to barkeeps and chefs, dozens of the city’s biggest hospitality talents will be cooking – or creating drinks to match – Old World barbecue recipes cooked over live fires. To further champion the good food movement, a portion of all proceeds will go to Cochon555’s sister charity, Piggy Bank – a pig farming sanctuary.

Cochon555 is proud to announce the competing chefs for 2017 in Miami:
Chef Clark Bowen and Chef Rick Mace of db Bistro Moderne & Café Boulud Palm Beach – Contemporary French
Chef Tito Vargas of The Bazaar by José Andrés – Modern Spanish with a Twist
Chef Paula DaSilva of Artisan Beach House – Bold New American Cooking
Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog of gastroPod – Elevated Global Street Foods
Chef John Gallo and Rene Reyes of Pinch Kitchen – Freestyle American Cuisine

At the heart of all Cochon555 barbecue events lies a culinary competition to promote local family farming and global grilling traditions. The chefs are each given one whole, heritage-breed pig of 200 pounds and one week to prepare the whole animal. Each chef must present a “Judge’s Plate” of six dishes to a panel of 20 notable judges. The panel scores each plate based on utilization; global influences; cooking techniques; and overall flavor in order to select a winner, who will then be crowned the “BBQ Prince/Princess” of Miami. #COCHON555 @COCHON555 @PiggyBankOrg
