At the heart of all Cochon555 events lies a culinary competition to promote family farming. Five chefs are each given one whole, heritage breed pig and one week to prepare the entire animal (of 200 pounds). Each chef must present a “Judge’s Plate” of six dishes scored on utilization, cooking techniques, and overall flavor. The winner will then be crowned Austin’s “Prince or Princess of Pork.”

Running in tandem with the chef's event are the Somm Smackdown (the best pig/wine match) and Punch Kings featuring Breckenridge Distillery (barkeeps battling in whole-bottle competition). The winners compete in the year-end finale, Grand Cochon, to be held next year.
