What began as a small hot sauce contest in 1990 has grown into the largest competition of its kind and one of Austin’s largest and best-known annual food events, drawing as many as 10,000 spectators and over 350 entries each year. Hundreds of gallons of hot sauce are consumed and beverages are on hand to cool off the overheated. In addition to the hot sauce competition, this truly Austin food event features tastings from local restaurants, culinary demonstrations, sauces for sale, cookbooks, peppers and more, and of course live music.

At the heart of all Cochon555 events lies a culinary competition to promote family farming. Five chefs are each given one whole, heritage breed pig and one week to prepare the entire animal (of 200 pounds). Each chef must present a “Judge’s Plate” of 6 dishes scored on utilization, cooking techniques, and overall flavor. The winner will then be crowned Austin’s “Prince or Princess of Pork.” Running in tandem with the chef's event are the Somm Smackdown (the best pig/wine match) and Punch Kings featuring Breckenridge Distillery (barkeeps battling in whole-bottle competition).

Tuesday, August 22nd

Double digging is a method of preparing a garden bed so that it has superior soil structure that allows for more nutrient availability and improvement to the soil's water-holding capacity. With an initial investment of labor before a growing season, a deep, compacted soil can be turned into a garden where carrots and other deep-rooted vegetables prosper. Come out and learn from #aggroecology pioneer Gardener Skatecurb as he demonstrates this technique in our vegetable garden. Get your garden to flourish without the use of gas-powered machinery.
