Happy Piglet Day, everyone! We announced the books competing in The Piglet—the Oscars of cookbooks—just a little bit ago; see the list of finalists here. They'll go head-to-head in an NCAA-style tournament. But there's a friendlier, less-competitive, but just as impassioned part of the Piglet: the Community Picks!

These are 15 books that deserve honorable mentions and—for the first time ever—were chosen by you (over 1,100 of you!!). Every day a Piglet judgment runs, you'll also see a review of a Community Pick filled with insights, favorite moments and recipes, and one-sentence summaries from all of you, dear community. You can keep up with all of them here.
