Cochon 555

Sometimes you just happen to be in the right place at the right time and good things happen. I just so happened to log into Twitter when Google SF posted a link to get free VIP tickets to the Cochon 555 event held at the Culinary Institute in St. Helena. I honestly had no idea what Cochon 555 was but since I minored in French I at least understood that it had to do with pigs...and since I am in the top 100 bacon lovers of the world, of course I wanted to go! It was honestly a bit how I imagine my heaven to be. Bounteous amounts of wine, oysters, caviar, and 5 chefs duking it out in a pig cooking challenge (total Food Network status!) even Le Creuset was there hosting a food challenge and BBQing up a storm. All they needed was a wall of shoes & handbags and Justin Timberlake, then it actually would be exactly as I envision my own heaven! I'm sure I gained at least 10 pounds that day as I stuffed my face way past full, but it was totally worth it, plus I came prepared dressed in a super flowy skirt!

The Culinary Institute is seriously breathtaking!
