If all this talk of pig excites you, then try your hand at Cochon’s exclusive photo contest, “Beat the Winemaker.” To play, snap a picture at any of the Cochon 555 events across the country and upload it on our contest page (see above for inspiration). The grand prize is an all-expenses Official Judge's seat at Cochon Heritage BBQ in Memphis this Labor Day (3 days of bourbon, BBQ and music) and a reserve case of hand-selected wines.

Cochon 555 wrapped up the second stop of its national tour in Napa on Sunday night with a huge hometown celebration. Lars Kronmark from the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone beat out his competitors, including last year’s Cochon King & Queen of Porc, Duskie Estes and John Stewart of Zazu Restaurant and Farm, with his memorable pork fritters and stuffed trotters.
