If you’re a pork lover, this is one swine celebration you won’t want to miss. Celebrating its fifth anniversary, the Cochon U.S. tour makes its final stop in Las Vegas on October 20, and it’s going to be pig—er, big!
After months of touring the country and spreading its message that family farms provide better food choices and better-tasting, healthier options, Cochon will close out its milestone year in Downtown Las Vegas with the All-Star Cochon whole-hog competition. Ten chefs will prepare a ‘snout-to-tail’ menu for the tasting, featuring heritage breed pigs sourced in the competitors’ respective markets and including more than 40 swine-focused dishes, two butchering demos, reserve wines, artisan cocktails, craft brews and—you knew this was coming—pork-infused desserts.
“We are excited to extend the tour once again into Las Vegas; it’s the ultimate place to celebrate the flavor benefits of heritage breed pigs,” event founder and Taste Network principal Brady Lowe says. As part of the celebration, other events will be held throughout the weekend. Keep an eye on AmuseCochon.com for updates and tickets.
