Cochon555 is a culinary competition promoting local family farming and whole pig cookery through the eyes of five notable chefs. Tasked with the goal to win votes from celebrity judges and participants, chefs have one week to prepare a 200-pound pig and present a "Judge's Plate" scored on utilization, technique, and overall flavor. The winner of the local competition is announced the Prince or Princess of Pork and advances to the national finale. Grand Cochon spotlights the 'Best 3 Bites' from all Cochon555 regional events in a head-to-tail, winner-takes-all showdown for the crown. The ultimate aim of Cochon555 is to provide education to chefs and consumers and create experiences that guests can sink their teeth into: honest food from real farmers. Every event is a fundraiser for Cochon555's sister charity, Piggy Bank, a start-up farm in Missouri that serves as a kickstarter for new family farms and a safety net for those in the wake of a disaster (flood, fire and disease).
