Heritage Fire by Cochon 555, a premier hyper-local, whole animal, live-fire, outdoor food and wine event. Going on seven years, the events continue to attract sold-out crowds, which recently included hosting Heritage Fire Snowmass during the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. The goal of the events produced by the team at Cochon 555 are to promote honest food artisans, celebrate family farms, and create culinary awareness for those hard working people responsibly raising heritage species. The events tilt the scales in favor of the farms and the relationship with the emerging chef community constantly struggling with paying premium food prices when the decision is made to serve their guests safer, flavorful food raised locally. Heritage Fire is a massive collection of culinary experts cooking together for a crowd of meat and wine enthusiasts over live-fires during a high-energy culinary experience.

Heritage Fire will showcase more than 50 notable chefs cooking 3,000 pounds of heritage breed animals alongside wines from California and Germany. Chefs and farmers will work together to spotlight traditional outdoor cooking techniques paired with amazing wines and the craft beers of Magnolia Brewery. The list of heritage dishes featured include wood roasted duck, assorted cuts of dry-aged beef and tartare Bar from Creekstone Farms, spit roasted local rabbit, roasted goat, raw oysters and roasted clams, octopus with chorizo, sturgeon, and many variations of heritage breed pig with artisan cheeses and heirloom vegetables which are all paired with the best beverages.  

“It’s always an honor to host Heritage Fire in St. Helena, and to have amazing partners like Charles Krug, St. Helena Tourism and the Napa Valley welcome us for this special weekend means things are really heating up for heritage species, responsible agriculture and amazing chefs. Napa and Colorado are now home to Cochon’s best expression of live-fire cooking in the country and as a guest, immersion in the good food movement means eating well, enjoying interaction with the best chefs, farmers and sponsors from around the country. Guests can expect an epic culinary experience,” stated Brady Lowe, Founder of Cochon 555.

About Cochon US Tour
The Cochon US Tour executes a variety of unique, local food events that are focused on raising enthusiasm for supporting family farms with the world’s first environmentally conscious nose-to-tail pig competition. The flagship Cochon 555 event is celebrated as the world’s first environmentally conscious nose-to-tail pig competition. Created in response to the lack of consumer education around heritage breed pigs, this epic pork feast visits 20 major cities in North America annually. The tour also features a multitude of live-event expressions including Heritage BBQ (global cultures), Heritage Fire (live-fire event), EPIC Cochon (hyper-premium), and Cochon Island (agri-tourism). The events feature top chefs preparing whole heritage breed pigs and other locally raised proteins. Together with winemakers, brewers, distillers and craft food makers they create authentic culinary events celebrating champions in the good food movement. Since its launch, the tour has supported responsible family farming by allowing 50,000 people to taste heritage pork for the first time and by donating more than $450,000 to charities and culinary schools, and more than $750,000 directly to farmers. For more details about the events, visit www.cochon555.com or follow @cochon555 on Twitter.
