COCHON555 MIAMI IS NOW CARRYOUT WITH COCHON555 PRESENTED BY CITI:
MIAMI’S TOP CHEFS TO CREATE CULINARY MAGIC AND SHOWCASE ONLINE PORK PREP
Tickets go on sale Thursday, August 20th
A much-anticipated annual culinary event with stops in cities across the United States, COCHON555 will return to Miami Tuesday, September 22- Sunday, September 27, 2020, as CARRYOUT WITH COCHON555 presented by Citi, a virtual and interactive feast featuring five of the city’s top talents. Across five different nights, a stellar line up of South Florida celebrity chefs – Michael Lewis (KYU), Michael Schwartz (Amara at Paraiso), Janine Booth & Jeff McGinnis (Root & Bone, Stiltsville), Giorgio Rapicavoli (Eating House) and Brad Kilgore (Ember) – will conduct “virtual dinners” via Zoom, offering participants the opportunity to partake in an intimate, interactive dining experience, complete with all of the ingredients necessary to enjoy a pork-centric meal including wine and cocktails.
“Regretfully, as COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our lives and community, we recognized we could not produce our event tour as we had hoped. As a result, we decided to create a carryout program with an online component as a creative alternative for our fan base while supporting local restauranteurs, and raising awareness for Heritage breed pigs,” Brett Friedman, Partner & CEO of Agency 21 Consulting, which owns/operates Cochon555. “People are hungry to connect, so transitioning into something virtual was a natural reallocation of the brand. By inviting food lovers to enjoy a meal prepared by Florida’s top culinary minds, while engaging in intimate cooking demonstrations, we are still able to generate excitement while supporting our local restaurant community.” To that end, Cochon555 has committed to donating 80% of the ticket proceeds to the participating restaurants.
Guests will purchase tickets ($115 for one; $200 for two) which will include a multi-course meal, prepared by the featured chef with almost all of the ingredients sourced from heritage breed pig farms; a bottle of wine (red or white) from Bodegas Ontañón and a cocktail kit or pre-mixed cocktail comprised of either Buffalo Trace or Wheatly Vodka. During a 45-minute live Zoom, the Chefs will recreate one of the featured dishes (guests will cook along); the other dishes will be pre-prepared and ready to heat and/or serve. Guests can choose to pick up their kit at the chef’s designated restaurant or have it delivered for an additional $30 fee.
