Coby Lee Ming of Harvest
Annie Pettry of Decca 

When & Where: 
Sunday, Sept. 8th; 5pm (VIP); 5:55pm (GA)
21C Museum Hotel

This is a premium event, 100% flavor from nose to tail. It’s all about heritage breed pigs and great farmers. Ticket price includes drink and tons of food in a hyper-local BBQ Competition, unlike anyone has ever known.

Want to get a quick taste for it? Check out the photos from the past two BBQ events here. St. Louis BBQ photos // Memphis BBQ photos

Tickets:  $125 for General Admission
From Korean BBQ to Asado, Japanese Hibachi to celebrating American regional styles, this event combines top chefs with globally-influenced BBQ. Guests will be treated to an epic pork feast, and intimate event for 400 people who get to eat over 1200lbs of pig. There will be a Welcome Cocktail “Old-Fashion-Style” from Urban Bourbon Trail, Artisan Cheeses, Rappahannock River BBQ Oysters, Against The Grain Brewing, reserve wines from Taste Network / Charles Smith / K Vintners and sangrias from Old 502 Winery, Crispin Ciders, the Perfect Manhattan Bourbon Bar featuring Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, Four Roses, Hirsh, Hudson, Breckenridge, A Full Mezcal Bar, cocktails from Templeton Rye and Four Roses, Fernet Branca, a whole pig butcher demo, amazing ice cream sandwiches from Comfy Cow, followed by a Four Rose’s After Party for the chefs at Proof on Main. Anyone looking to celebrate PIG and National Bourbon Month should come not miss this BBQ. Cochon puts on all-inclusive premium food and drink events.

$200 for VIP
Includes all of the above as well as early access to the five chefs and opportunity to hang out with the judges of the event. Additional VIP tastings includes Ribs from Feast BBQ paired with a reserve wine, passed BBQ’d Oysters, first dibs on the chef offerings, access to meet the judges and one whole hour to soak-up the bourbon.

Similar to COCHON 555, Heritage BBQ is a tasting event where six chef teams are each challenged to utilize one whole heritage breed pig to win votes from 20 noteworthy judges. Each chef crew must prepare one plate showcasing the whole hog in six distinct dishes comprised of four meats and two sides. The meats are BONE, MUSCLE, PULL, STEW, and sides are MAYO and MUSTARD. The winner of Cochon Heritage BBQ receives $1,500 to donate to a charity or farm of their choosing, a stash of Cochon specially selected cask-strength Four Roses Bourbon, a keg of Cochon Edition “BBQ King” and a CVAP POD from Winston Industries.

“My goal is to create team building events that showcase the growth potential of BBQ restaurants buying whole heritage pigs from family farms. The process and judging format is our best approach at whole animal utilization, whereas we do not create a burden on small farmers to hold a surplus unwanted animal parts during any part of our competition.”

“The events are hyper-local and they create word-of-mouth marketing for family farms. It’s an honor to have a national spotlight right now and to work with such amazing chefs. We are developing a message with a deeper meaning, far beyond competition BBQ. Today, we are reaching out to people who care about the conversation of local food made by real people.

I hope to see you there.

Local Farm Hosts Dinner for James Beard Foundation

Green Door Gourmet plans “sweet” menu

Special Celebrity Guest Host Pam Tillis 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July XX, 2013) – You don’t have to go to New York for a James Beard Foundation dinner. Green Door Gourmet, a biodynamic and sustainable farm in West Nashville, will soon host a Friends of James Beard Benefit Dinner with a sweet theme: honey.
On Sept. 10, Green Door Gourmet and Executive Chef Richard Jones, working in conjunction with JBF, will utilize guest chefs from around the region to educate, inspire, entertain and foster a deeper understanding the South’s culinary culture. The “Golden Harvest Dinner” will be held at “The Grange,” the farm’s upscale event barn. It will be modeled after dinners at the Beard House in New York, featuring a multi-course menu with wine pairings.
Friends of James Beard Benefit dinners are hosted by chefs and restaurants around the country. Proceeds go toward supporting JBF’s general operating fund and scholarship program.
“We are honored to carry on the James Beard Foundation’s mission of celebrating, nurturing and honoring America’s diverse culinary heritage and we are proud to do that right here in Tennessee with some incredible regional chefs and locally grown food,” said Sylvia Ganier, founder of Green Door Gourmet “And the honey is the icing on our cake.

About the James Beard Foundation

Founded in 1986, the James Beard Foundation’s mission is to celebrate, nurture, and honor America’s diverse culinary heritage through programs that educate and inspire. A cookbook author and teacher with an encyclopedic knowledge about food, James Beard, who died in 1985, was a champion of American cuisine. He helped educate and mentor generations of professional chefs and food enthusiasts, instilling in them the value of wholesome, healthful and delicious food. Today the Beard Foundation continues in the same spirit by administering a number of diverse programs that include educational initiatives, food industry awards, scholarships for culinary students, publications, chef advocacy training, and thought-leader convening. The Foundation also maintains the historic James Beard House in New York City’s Greenwich Village as a “performance space” for visiting chefs. In September of 2012, the Foundation launched the Diplomatic Culinary Partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Protocol and helped create the American Chef Corps as a way to champion American chefs abroad, promote American food products and foster an interest in American culinary culture and history through international programs and initiatives.
