Event Details

Grand Cochon is the tour's year-end finale in which 14 chefs from 14 cities cook their three best bites while competing to be crowned as the nation's King or Queen of Pork for 2018 -- all while celebrating Cochon555's ten year anniversary. Some ten heritage breed pigs in all are featured in this nose-to-tail culinary showdown. The chefs will serve more than 2,000+ pounds of responsibly-raised heritage breed pork, all in the name of supporting family farms and a future of safer, more honest, and delicious food.

Enthusiasts can also sign up for the finale of our national cocktail punch competition, Punch Kings. 14 barkeeps from around the country compete in the most notable punch-themed celebration featuring Breckenridge Bourbon.

“We're pulling out all the stops, because you only turn ten once,” said Brady Lowe, Founder of Cochon555. “As one of this country’s premiere dining cities, we’re proud to have Chicago as the centerpiece of our largest-ever Grand Cochon this year. Guests can expect an epic culinary experience that’s not just about quality, but wines, spirits, cheeses, pork dishes and much more, all created with purpose and passion. This is eating and drinking for a cause.”
