Grand Cochon, Classic in Aspen

June 16th, 2013

GRAND COCHON, is among the finale events at the Annual FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen, the nation’s premier culinary festival, and will determine the 2013 “King or Queen of Porc.” The event includes more than 30 chef dishes, butcher demos, reserve wines, craft brews, mixologists, artisan cocktails, mezcals, tar tare bar, our 2013 Punch King winner and an award ceremony. The winning chef will be chosen by the audience and a panel of 20 expert judges.

This year’s caliber of competing chefs for the Grand Cochon title are announced along the COCHON 555 ten city tour. Each regional competition is designed to promote the awareness of a better food system by highlighting heritage breed animals and community agriculture. It is the only heritage breed pig culinary competition in the U.S. *NOTE EVENT TIMES: 3:00pm VIP ($200); 3:45pm General Admission ($150)

“The success of Cochon 555 and Grand Cochon is attributed to one thing: flavor,” says Lowe. “Four years ago, we set out on a mission to create a national conversation around heritage pigs and responsible agriculture, and today we celebrate with the greatest culinary event in the country – the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen. It’s an honor to be there, and an honor to feed the foodies, the influencers, educators and celebrated icons of our national food community. I tilt my hat to FOOD & WINE and its teams for all they do to bring attention to such a flavorful and communal cause.”

WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK OUR SPONSORS FOR SUPPORTING THE VISION
AND PAVING THE ROAD TO A BETTER FOOD SYSTEM
