At the Renaissance Blackstone, the pig showdown will be against 2010 Food & Wine Best New Chef Mike Sheerin of 3 Floyds Brewpub, Andrew Zimmerman of Sepia, Michael Fiorello of the hotel's Mercat a la Planxa, Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard of Girl and the Goat, and Chris Pandel of the Bristol.

The winner from each city will go to go the finale, Grand Cochon, at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen on June 19. But until then, you can fill up on piggy goodness at the hotel events for $125.
