The Piglet

Who Wins the 2016 Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks?

February 25, 2016

This is one of the happiest days of the year. It's the first day of The Piglet, which means it marks the beginning of a few-week period where cookbooks get a little cutthroat. They elicit elbow throws, tears of happiness, joy—and inevitably, comment sections will produce an illegal slide or two. (I am watching. I used to ref.)

And it's all that much more fun if you have a horse in the race.

So we asked our judges—and you—which book you thought would win this year's tournament, and we collected all of the answers for today's episode of Burnt Toast.

Want to know who Ari Shapiro has his money on? What about Andrew Zimmern? I also talk to a Chicago bookstore owner who's running an in-store competition alongside The Piglet this year. Her golden reaction when I tell her which cookbook wins is right this way:

Play the episode above, find it on iTunes, or listen to it using your favorite podcatcher. (Don't have one yet? We're fans of Stitcher.)

So: Who do you think will win?

This is the way Christmas was for me when I was little. So hard to wait and so thrilling when it came!
