The Piglet

Catch Up on the Piglet: Week 3

By • March 1, 2014 • 2 Comments

We're halfway through Round 3, and we're already getting sentimental for Piglet 2014. In our third week, we navigated the competition's upsets and shoe-ins like seasoned Piget pros. On Monday, Josh Malina set the tone by tending to his bucket list; April Bloomfield stressed that she looks for a cookbook with a sense of adventure; and, embracing that ideal, Tad Friend invited "naked-and-hallucinating-at-the-wheel-of-his-Porsche Robert Downey, Jr." in cookbook form to his house (and liked it). 

To read more, check out each judgment -- and the week's Piglet Community Picks -- below. We'll see you back here on Monday for the final rounds.

Super sad to see The Piglet ending! We need more Piglet action...like sports fans have different sports in different seasons! Maybe a Piglet each for the October and May cookbook bonanzas and another for non-traditional release times. :)
