The 2015 Tournament of Cookbooks -- Day 6

February 25, 2015

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: We're on day 6 of Round 1! 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!

It's New York City versus Seattle -- who will claim victory, Buvette or 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.)
