Anda, Bruner-Yang, More at This Year's Cochon 555

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

Who will be crowned the prince (or princess) of pork? This year, chefs Nathan Anda (Red Apron), Erik Bruner-Yang (Toki Underground), Mike Friedman (The Red Hen), Dylan Fultineer (Rappahannock Restaurants) and Marjorie Meek-Bradley (Ripple) are the local competitors in the popular pork-based competition. Mike Isabella of Graffiato and Kapnos won last year.

Here's the drill: each chef will prepare six dishes created from one whole pig: both judges and attendees will vote on the favorites. The winner will go on to compete in the Grand Cochon at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen in June.

The event will be held at Union Market this year on March 23. This year, Adam Musselman of Red Apron Butcher will do a butchering demo and Jeffrey Buben of Vidalia and Scott Drewno of The Source will prepare an additional whole pig in a late-night "Asian Speakeasy" style. There will be plenty of alcohol and other highlights as well. Tickets ($125) general are available online.
