Heritage BBQ at Muss & Turner's
Atlanta-based Local Three Chef Todd Mussman and 4th & Swift Chef Jay Swift cook up the winning recipes for an exclusive dinner event. There will be 2 seating times offered: 5:30pm & 7:30pm.  Please be sure to specify your preference.

ATLANTA (October 4, 2012)  Brady Lowe of Taste Network and COCHON 555 hosted the first-annual COCHON Heritage BBQ event, crowning Atlanta-based Local Three Chef Todd Mussman, Chef Jay Swift of 4th & Swift,  Chef Nick Melvin, and Farmer Tommy Searcy of Gum Creek Farms the winners of the BBQ cooking competition. To celebrate the victory, Atlanta chefs Mussman and Swift will host exclusive pop-up dinner events featuring the winning BBQ menu at their respective restaurants  on Monday, October 15 at Muss & Turners and on Sunday, October 28 at 4th & Swift.

As part of the pork-fueled Heritage BBQ weekend this past Labor Day, organizers Brady Lowe and Ryan Trimm of Sweet Grass in Memphis, alongside Food & Wine People's Best New Chef Jamie Bissonnette of Boston's Toro, created a Heritage BBQ Pop-Up Restaurant as a model to show diners what Heritage BBQ restaurants can be. This never-before-done pop-up dinner showcased the benefits of whole animal utilization in BBQ, helping to further COCHON's mission of raising awareness of heritage breed pigs.

At the competition, Chef Mussman and his Heritage BBQ team impressed the judges with their menu, taking home top honors. His team, like all other competitors, executed a menu from a whole heritage hog, focusing on four meats (pull, muscle, bone, stew) plus two sides (mayo, mustard) for the complete snout-to-tail pork feast. For these exclusive dinner events hosted by chefs Mussman and Swift, guests will experience the following menu that won BBQ gold in Memphis (buffet station style):

Chile RelleƱo Pie

Pig Head Gumbo with Dirty Rice Calas

Master Chang Broth

Tennessee State Fair Slider

Esquites, Pork Fat Mayo, Hominy Corn Nuts

Pork and Cranberry Beans, Belly, Ham Pastrami, Mustard Molasses Glaze

Taste Network Founder Brady Lowe will be attendance at both dinners to talk about the importance of preserving the heritage breed pig and supporting local farms. As a special thanks to guests, Lowe will pour an exclusive tasting of bourbon from his private cellar.

The cocktail reception will feature a welcome cocktail with Templeton Rye whiskey, a spirit that is new to the Atlanta market. Dinner will follow, where guests will enjoy a tasting of the entire heritage menu. Priced at $35, tickets include the welcome cocktail and dinner, with optional cash bar for additional imbibing. Reservations are required and can be made by visiting Brown Paper Bag tickets:

Created by Taste Network's Brady Lowe in 2009 in response to the lack of consumer education around heritage breeds, COCHON is a national event series that takes place in 14 major markets. Every January, COCHON 555 embarks on a 10-city culinary competition and tasting tour where 50 chefs are selected to prepare a 'snout -to-tail' menu created from heritage breed pigs.  The 10 winners of each regional event are flown to the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen for the final competition, Grand Cochon.  Cochon All-Star, Cochon Heritage Fire, and Cochon Heritage BBQ will be hosted as well in 2012.
