It's New York City versus Seattle -- who will claim victory, Buvetteor A Boat, A Whale & A Walrus? Read Emily Gould's very thorough answer here, and let us know what you think in the comments section. One lucky commenter will have a chance to win a copy of the prevailing book.
Cook the books: Every once in awhile, we welcome long baking projects -- the ones to linger over a day or two, that make us slow down. This weekend, take on a baking project from today's Piglet contenders, namely the Bomboloni from Buvette and the Gâteau de Crêpes from A Boat, A Whale & A Walrus. (Or if you're feeling a little more savory, go for the Lacinato Kale Gratin from A Boat, A Whale & A Walrus instead.)
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!
