Welcome to The Piglet! Catch up on the full list of books and judges, score your own copies in the shop, and print out a bracket to follow along. Round 1 of The Piglet is brought to you by our friends at Squarespace.
Today: Play has officially begun! Head here for a refresher course on our cookbook tournament, and then read on for the decision. Be sure to comment there for a chance to get a copy of the winning book!
Without further ado, we present the first judgment: Prune faces off against Heritage, and Eater's restaurant critic and data lead Ryan Sutton calls the shots.
Head here to read the results of his very thorough testing, and then let us know what you think in the comments section of the judgment! One lucky commenter will have a chance to win a copy of the prevailing book.
If you can't wait until your book arrives, cook along with the contenders now: We'll be featuring a recipe from each book with each day's judgment. Today, it's the Mixed Colored Carrots with Preserved Lemon Butter and Honeycomb from Prune and Southern Grits from Heritage.
