Photos: Cochon 555 in Los Angeles
Who took home the prince of pork title in LA?
Cochon 555 is a 10-city tour that is lardcore to the core. It’s a type of offal exhibition rarely seen outside of a Fergus Henderson birthday party. At each of the stops five local chefs compete with one goal in mind—to cook every last morsel of a particular breed of heritage hog like Red Wattle, Hampshire and Berkshire.
On Sunday, five local chefs hit the House of Blues on Sunset Blvd. for an epic nose-to-tail throwdown. Those chefs include Chad Colby of Mozza, Ben Ford of Ford's Filling Station, Neal Fraser of the Strand House, Grace & BLT, Jason Neroni of Superba Snack Bar, and Micah Wexler of Mezze.
