Anastacia Quiñones-Pittman of José is one of five chefs competing during food festival Cochon555, a whole-hog cooking competition on Feb. 9, according to Sarah Blascovich at the Dallas Morning News. Whoever wins will be called Prince or Princess of Pork then move on to the Grand Cochon. Tickets to Cochon555 are $125 to $185 per person. The event takes place at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas in Irving. Eater Dallas named Quiñones-Pittman 2018 Chef of the Year. “Quinones launched her Tacos de Tacha pop-up, where innovative options like coconut fried okra served on a green curry tortilla brilliantly showed off her skills,” Eater wrote. José is a Guadalajaran inspired restaurant on Lovers focused on contemporary Mexican-inspired cuisine and Jalisco-style dishes.
