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.
The 2015 Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks kicked off this Wednesday with Eater's Ryan Sutton and his thorough testing (he stopped just short of subjecting them to the "blowtorch test"). Adam Roberts got visual, with a graphic (-novel style) recounting of his judging process. Yesterday, Alexandra Guarnaschelli reviewed two books that explore the concepts of cultural and taste shifts. Read each day's judgment below, and tune in next week to see what the next wave of judges and competitors will bring.
The Piglet—inspired by The Morning News' Tournament of Books—is where the 16 most notable cookbooks of the year face off in a NCAA-style bracketed tournament. Watch the action and weigh in on the results!
