Cochon 555 is a 14-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. The porcine parade returned to New York City yesterday evening with an all-female (!!) competition featuring a diverse cast of the city’s best. Leah Cohen of Pig and Khao, Elizabeth Falkner of Krescendo and A Voce’s Missy Robbins joined host Brady Lowe (read our interview) for a blowout event. And the winner was?
