Five of New York’s best female chefs went head-to-head at this past Sunday’s Cochon 555 pork cooking competition. A ten-city tour that kicks off in New York and ends at Aspen's annual Food & Wine Classic, the event brought together five chefs, five heritage breed pigs, and five small batch wineries (as well as a few good bourbons and mezcals) for an evening of sustainable gluttony. This year’s chef lineup included Alex Guarnaschelli (Butter), Missy Robbins (A Voce), Shanna Pacifico (Back Forty West), Elizabeth Falkner (Krescendo), and Leah Cohen (Pig & Khao) creating small bite menus using the entirety of the animal—from nose to tail. Here’s a recap:
