On April 22nd, it’s totally okay to pig out. At Cochon555, five chefs will race against the clock to make the tastiest bites possible from one pig each. Their attempts to use the whole animal are both creative and sustainable. We’re not going to tell you who to cheer for, but Thompson Seattle's very own Chef Derek Simcik will be competing. Wine pairings complement exquisite eats, and a pop-up pie shop with Mike’s Pies is, er, the icing on the cake. Below, Cochon founder Maria Perez gives us the rundown on the event.
