Pop-up dining experiences are all the rage in NYC! In November, I featured my experience at “The Thirst”- a secret dinner and cocktail party that was hosted by chef Todd English. Today, I want to share details about a more unique pop-up dining event that’s headed to Manhattan.

Cochon 555 is a one-of-a-kind traveling culinary competition and tasting event–five chefs, five pigs, five wine makers–to promote sustainable farming of heritage breed pigs. Each stop along the ten-city tour offers hard-working local farmers the opportunity to connect with like-minded agriculturalists, renowned chefs and the pork-loving public. Cochon 555 is the only heritage breed pig culinary competition in the country.

Lucky for us, Cochon 555 will be in NYC on January 23rd at the Lighthouse, Hudson River and 23rd! Each event provides pig-loving epicureans with a sampling of pork dishes served with wines from five different small wineries. After the tasting, guests and a panel of 20 judges vote for the winning local chef (the Prince or Princess of Porc) who will travel to the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen to compete in the finale for the title of King or Queen.  Guests have the opportunity to eat well and be part of an amazing food and wine community while supporting sustainable agriculture.
