This heritage piggy went to market, this heritage pig stayed home; this heritage piggy had roast beef, this heritage pig had none.  And THIS heritage piggy went “wee-wee-wee!” all the way home… to Atlanta, home of COCHON555 organizer Brady Lowe!

This Sunday’s event is a must for foodies and supporters of sustainable farming.  Five heritage pigs honored by five Atlanta chefs, paired with five independent winemakers and five bourbon distilleries, in the fifth year of COCHON555 making this year’s event particularly special.

For this anniversary, COCHIN555 adds the Chupito Bar featuring mescals such as Ilegal, Mezcales de Leyenda, Fidencio and Pierde Almas to taste alongside the popular Craft Cheese Bar with dairies including Cypress Grove Chevre, Vermont Butter & Cheese, Spring Brook Farms, Rogue Creamery and Kerrygold.

For more gastronomic thrills, VIP guests may enjoy the Punch Kings cocktail competition where six Atlanta bartenders shake, rattle and mix their stuff to prove whose bevs can beat ‘em all.  For nibbles, VIPs gain exclusive access to the hand-cut Tartare Bar featuring Alma Cocina’s Chad Clevenger and sustainable oysters from Rappahannock River.

Attendees are invited to a not-to-be-missed after-party at Fandangle’s where those still hungry can enjoy food and drink specials for $5.55, presented by Host Chef Marc Suennemann of Sheraton Atlanta.

Why drive home after so much fun?  The Sheraton Atlanta, Official Hotel of COCHON555, is offering special room rates plus admission for $199, or with VIP admission for $274.
