Epic is a word that gets tossed around a little too frequently, in our humble opinion at least. But when you're talking about an event that's brining in an unfathomable 1500 pounds of heritage pork (seriously, how many pigs is that?), 20 big name chefs to prepare it and a serious amount of booze, well, that's pretty epic.
This Sunday Epic Cochon, a celebration of all things porcine in coming to Philadelphia. The event is happening at The Riz-Carlton (10 Avenue of the Arts) and promises to be a veritable bacchanal with stations including bourbon, mezcal and tartare bars, cheeses, oysters, a show cone machine and loads of local brews.
Oh and about that pork? Jose Garces, Nick Macri, Brad Spence, Joe Cicala and Jeremy Nolen are just a few of the chefs that are creating snout to tail, collaborative dishes for the evening's menu.
Tickets are going for $135 for general admission for $200 for high rollers including early entry and access to oysters, first round of special cures, and limited amount of dishes like ears, jowls, trotters, and tails. The kind folks at Cochon gave us a $25 off promo code (EPIC) for tickets. Get 'em here and see you there.
