Scenes from Sunday’s awesome Cochon555 event at the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead.
Cochon555 is “the epic culinary tasting and friendly competition for a cause featuring 5 top chefs (and their farm-raised pigs), 5 barkeeps, 5 sommeliers, and more!
Full disclosure, it was impossible to take good photos while trying to take in everything as there was SO much to take in so I apologize in advance. This is why I need my own personal cameraman!
5 amazing chefs with their culinary creations made from family farm-raised pigs plus other local (non-competing) chefs from area restaurants getting in on the action. And the BOOZE! Just WOW! Wine, Bourbon, and Whiskey as far as the eye could see.
Aside from the competition to see who will represent Atlanta at “Grand Cochon” in Chicago, this was an opportunity to raise funds and awareness for these family farms. I got an eye-opening education about the farm-to-table difference and significance! Special thanks to Dining Out ATL for this amazing opportunity!
