WHAT: Cochon555
WHEN: March 25, 4 p.m. (VIP), 5 p.m. (general admission)
WHERE: Loews Minneapolis Hotel, 601 N. First Ave.

WHY: Five chefs, five pigs, five winemakers, five somms, five barkeeps, and one charity. A culinary competition promotes local family farming and whole-pig cookery through the efforts of five notable chefs, raising awareness and funds for the farmers and start-up farms. Cochon555's sister charity is Piggy Bank, a start-up farm in Missouri that serves as a kickstarter for new family farms and a safety net for those in the wake of disaster. Learn more.

INSIDER INFO: These local chefs are in the competition this year: Timothy Fischer, of Loews Minneapolis Hotel; Daniel del Prodo, of Martina; Karyn Tomlinson, of Corner Table; Russell Klein, of Meritage; and Remy Pettus, of Bardo.
