Kicking off the fourth national tour, Cochon 555’s New York edition hosted five of the city’s meatiest restaurants for an hour and a half of tastings on Jan. 22. Judges queued up early and were privy to special selections, while guests ploughed through an array of mini offerings from Restaurant Marc Forgione, Resto, The Monkey Bar, Betto, and Trestle on Tenth before offering their votes. Though Forgione took home the golden trophy for dishes like a dry-aged pork hot dog with tarragon mustard, braised pork and blood tortellini surrounded by pork bone consommé, and hot fat back served with a shot of bacon and banana “Elvis” whiskey, his table disappointingly ran out of food by 5:30 p.m. (tastings started at 5 p.m.).

While other chefs managed to make their offerings last, Forgione's table was many attendees' first (and second and third) stop. Meanwhile, Damon Wise from The Monkey Bar was serving hot dishes like the puerco tacos with salsa verde until the end of the tasting hour, and managed to scrape together some new dishes on the spot like the blood sausage served on top of a turnip sauerkraut that had originally gone on their roasted pork sliders. Some form of blood sausage seemed to find its place on nearly every table, from the boudin noir and chick pea ragu with a skin crisp from Resto to the biroldo on the Betto charcuterie table along with prosciutto cotto and sausage paesana. In terms of charcuterie, the jamón Iberico from Fermín was outstanding.

What else did we love eating? Resto’s whiskey balls made with Templeton rye whiskey, shoulder bacon, pork sugar, and chicharron (paired with a Templeton Manhattan topped with brandy-soaked cherries); Betto’s feet meat hot dogs with sauerkraut, grainy mustard, and Gruyère, as well as their liver mousse topped with a vincotto glaze; Blackberry Farms’ fromage blanc and mushroom mustard; and Trestle on Tenth’s classic ham and cheese sandwich with homemade pickles.

Guests circled the room tasting wine from wineries like Wind Gap and Elk Cove, drinking beer from Anchor Steam, and sampling cheese from Murray’s. After the tastings and mesmerizing whole hog butchering demo from Joshua Applestone of Fleisher’s Meats, the Fatty ‘Cue crew rolled out a big barbecue spread — pig done four ways along with sides like potato salad and collard greens. A champagne toast preceded the awards, which Cochon 555 founder Brady Lowe emceed. Forgione will be competing with the other cities’ winners at the Aspen Food & Wine Classic in June.

This weekend, JV and our sous chef, Ben, are headed to Philadelphia to partake in COCHON EPIC No.2 — an ‘expression’ of Cochon 555 that showcases a one-time-only event, never to be replicated. Last year’s EPIC was held at the James Beard House in NYC and featured a pork-centric dinner paired with vintage Champagnes for 80 guests. This year, the event will be held on Sunday, July 28, at the Ritz-Carlton in Philly, where 20 local chefs will team up to prepare six whole heritage breed pigs (that’s more than 1500 pounds of pork!) from local farms to create a mouth-watering feast.

And unlike Cochon 555, EPIC is not a competition, but rather “a celebration of all the chefs, farmers and pork-enthusiasts Philly has to offer,” — per their website. Sounds pretty awesome, right? The good news is, if you’re lucky enough to be in the Philly area and are interested in stuffing your face with delicious pork for an evening, tickets are still available here.

JV was invited to participate as a National Chef, along with Matt Jennings of Farmstead in Providence, and Todd Mussman of Muss & Turners and Local Three in Atlanta. They will be preparing a collaborative menu to build enthusiasm for Cochon Heritage BBQ, a new Cochon event designed to feature the utilization of whole heritage breed pigs in BBQ communities across the nation. In preparation for the event, JV decided to spit-roast what’s called a “saddle-cut” of pork, meaning the loin, rib and belly are completely connected. Whoa.

Though cooking time was a bit of a guessing game, JV’s two main concerns were as follows: don’t burn the place down, and second, don’t break the spit keep in mind — that’s nearly 100 pounds of pork hanging on for dear life!

He smothered the pork in a delicious rub of spices, brown sugar and garlic (see recipe below), and let it go for a good three hours, all while feeding and maintaining the fire with a combination of apple and cherry wood (for flavor/smoke) and white oak wood (for heat). The end result? You’ll have to watch the video to find out )

EPIC Pork Rub Recipe:

::INGREDIENTS::

For every pound of pork use …

  • 1 T. coriander seed
  • 1 T. dill seed
  • 1 T. fennel seed
  • 1 T. whole juniper
  • 1 T. whole allspice
  • 1 T. whole clove
  • 1 T. mustard seed
  • 2 T. black pepper corn
  • 1 star anise
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

Crush spices together using a mortar and pestle, and then combine them with the salt, sugar and garlic. Rub this mixture on the pork and let sit for 2 days. Try using this rub on a pork loin that’s roasted in a hot oven, about 450 degrees F.
