Annual porkfest, Cochon 555, kicks off its 5th anniversary of celebrating heritage breeds in New York on February 10, with all female chefs: Alex Guarnaschelli (Butter, The Derby), Missy Robbins (A Voce), Shanna Pacifico (Back Forty West), Elizabeth Falkner (Krescendo) and Leah Cohen (Pig and Khao) will compete to be named Princess of Pork. Sue Torres (Suenos) will prepare the BBQ family feast; Sara Bigelow (The Meat Hook) will demo whole-pig butchering. Tickets start at $125 and include local wines, mezcal and bourbon tastings, pork-spiked desserts and more. Tune in as Erin Fairbanks chats with founder Brady Lowe about what’s in store this year and what goes behind throwing the event.
“This event is always about team and camaraderie. It’s the chef’s team that pressures the chef into doing it.” [13:30]
