Cochon 555 hits San Francisco this month, and with a limited number of $125 tickets available we’d like to give you the chance to go for free. Two lucky winners will attend the June 14 event at the Fairmont, where five chefs (including Nate Appleman, of A16 / SPQR, Ryan Farr, of 4505 Meats and Ravi Kapur, of Boulevard) will prepare five whole pigs and serve them and five local wines to the 250-strong crowd. The winning chef, based on utilization, presentation and overall best flavor, will be crowned “prince of porc.” At the Chicago version of this event, chefs made bacon-fat cocktails; donuts with mortadella mousse; and an Indian-Italian hybrid pork loin. How can you join in the fun? Full contest details are below.
Since this event is all about the love of the pig, we’d like to hear just how much of that you feel. Send us a 200-or-so-word love letter addressed to your favorite fictional pig by Wednesday, June 10. We’ll choose our favorite, and send the writer and a (human) guest to the event for free. Get inspired by the MenuPages Chicago entry that won our hearts, and the tickets. To get you started, take a look at Chicago’s winning entry.
