Over the past year, we’ve interviewed many members of the hospitality industry, and one constant among the interviewees has been a profound love for their pets. We thought it would be great to share this love with our readers. Today, we’re launching a new series for the next few weeks called “Wag Wednesday” to showcase industry peeps and their pets.

On April 19, Cochon 555 is returning to South Florida at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. The popular pork-centric culinary competition will pit local chefs against each other while guests reap the spoils of an endless feast featuring tasty bites, wines, brews and spirits.
The one-of-a-kind event is a celebration of family farms, heritage breed pigs and the “good-food” movement. Cochon 555 dates back to 2009, when Taste Network’s Brady Lowe created it to fight the lack of consumer education surrounding heritage breeds. Each year, the Cochon US Tour visits 20 different cities and hosts hyper-local events to raise awareness about these issues.
