Over 11 tons of heritage pork raised by family farms will be served across the country in a nose-to-tail touring culinary competition. In each city, five local chefs will each be given a 200 pound heritage breed pig to create six dishes for a crowd of pork-loving enthusiasts. A panel of 20 expert judges and guests of the event will vote for the city’s “Prince of Porc.”
Don’t wait to buy tickets to the most epic pork feast to hit Chicago, space is limited and we will sell out early.
This year’s competing chefs include Tim Graham of Travelle, Abraham Conlon of Fat Rice, Giuseppe Tentori of GT Fish & Oyster, Cory Morris of Mercat a la Planxa and Ryan McCaskey of Acadia Restaurant. The five chefs, champions to the pig, will battle it out in a friendly competition by preparing a maximum of six dishes each created from one whole heritage breed pig to win votes from a crowd of hungry gourmands and celebrated judges. In celebration of the tour’s 6th anniversary, Rob Levitt of Butcher & Larder will butcher a pig for the audience, and Patrick Sheerin of Trenchermen will prepare an additional late-night sixth pig in an Asian Speakeasy style before dessert and the awards ceremony.
