Have you heard? The Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks kicked off on Wednesday -- and a lot went down in Week 1. Sam Sifton ushered a cookbook into the second round that boasts "the greatest thing I had eaten in half a year." And though Christina Tosi rarely gets the chance to cook for herself, she reveled at the excuse to dive into her assignment. Yesterday, Brian Boitano called the shots. To read more, check out each judgment below -- and tune in next week to check out the next crop of Piglet competitors.
