Is this your first visit to The Piglet? Catch up on what's happened so far. If you're returning for day 4, read on as Serious Eats' J. Kenji López-Alt judges Bar Tartine: Techniques & Recipes vs. My Paris Kitchen.

Cook the books: The recipes we chose to feature from today's Piglet contenders take a bit of patience, but the results are well worth the wait: Make the Pickled Herring with Sour Cream and Onion from Bar Tartine and Chicken Lady Chicken (or Poulet Crapaudine Façon) from My Paris Kitchen.
