Cochon555 Rolls into Denver this Sunday!

Cochon555 is all about amazing pork and delicious beverages. This national series is returning to Denver on Sunday. This year’s event has transformed into their popular Heritage BBQ format.

I attended the 2016 event at the Ritz Carlton. Denver top chef Troy Guard (TAG, Guard and Grace, Mister Tuna, etc.) was the winner. The VIP ticket proved to be a great value as you get to meet the chefs and begin tasting an hour before the venue starts accepting General Admission ticket holders. There were tons of great dishes and beverages galore. Many of Colorado’s top chefs and sommeliers were in attendance.

2017 Cochon555 

There will be 5 chefs, 5 winemakers and assorted spirits and cocktails. Including Boulder based, Hosea Rosenberg, now owner of Blackbelly, made Colorado foodies proud when he won Bravo’s Top Chef, Season 5 in March 2009. After winning, his life change in many ways. He has cooked with celebrity chefs on TV and at events around the world. For the last few year’s, he has been at the helm of his highly acclaimed restaurant Blackbelly in Boulder.

Cochon555's Heritage BBQ celebrates global food cultures and family farming through a whole-hog cook-off between 5 Denver chefs. Tickets also include access to the Punch Kings (a bourbon punch mix-off) and the Somm Smackdown (wine/pig matching) championships + free-flow artisanal wines, handcrafted cocktails & pop-up food experiences including a ramen bar and pork-inspired desserts.
