Who will be the 2013 Prince of Porc? That's to be determined later in the spring, but it's now known who will compete. The April 28 Chicago leg of the fifth annual Cochon 555 tour will pit Cosmo Goss (Publican Quality Meats), Kevin Hickey (Allium), Matthias Merges (Yusho), Ryan Poli (Tavernita) and Josh Adams (June) against each other to supplant last year's winner Jason Vincent (Nightwood). Vincent will be a tough act to follow, having won the national competition in Aspen as well.
The event is a feast for the eyes and stomachs and a nightmare for the swine. Making stops in 10 cities, the pork-centric competition also features a butcher demonstration with Butcher and Larder's Rob Levitt and plenty of booze. Event tickets are available now, it's almost time to see if anyone can back up Jason Vincent's epic performance.
