Cook the books: While one of today's Piglet contenders is a baking book and the other is all about savory lunch, they do find common ground: in the sandwich. Sure, the Fresh Blueberry Brioche from Huckleberry would be splendid for breakfast or dessert, but author Zoe Nathan also suggests using it as the bread for a Monte Cristo sandwich. The Roasted Tenderloin Sandwich, Extra-Fancy, in Lunch at the Shop is equally, well, fancy.
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!
