Cochon555 is a national event, stopping in Minneapolis every year. Cochon, which is the French word for pig, celebrates heritage pork dishes. Chefs are challenged to use pork in creative ways, and the results are spectacular. I’ve had the honor of attending Cochon555 multiple times, and it’s a fun event.

Typically, one chef from the Minneapolis event heads to a national Cochon555 competition. In 2018, Tomlinson won the Grand Cochon contest.
