Piglet Party 2010

Wondering what that delicious thing was you tasted at our recent Piglet Party? Dying to see photos of everything you missed (or scan the crowd for familiar faces)? Read on below for a full debriefing on the party which, if we do say so ourselves, was a really good time. You can see photos of it all in the slideshow below, shot by food52's own Sarah Shatz.

We'd like to extend a special thank you to Adam Roberts (our delightful Emcee), New York Times editors Christine Muhlke & Luise Stauss (curators of the deliciously voyeuristic food porn slideshow), extraordinary Food Porn panel moderator Frank Bruni and panelists Frank Falcinelli, Ben Leventhal and Deb Perelman, and the event's sponsors, who provided all the great food, drink and entertainment. We recommend perusing the links below to finish up any lingering holiday shopping -- you can't go wrong.

Actually we just strained bottled tomato juice, first through a fine-meshed strainer, then through cheesecloth -- but your method would work too!
