Great video on the history of the Piglet, Charlotte and Kenzi! It's always great to watch the Piglet unfold. Each year without fail the contest piques my interest in a cookbook or two that I wouldn't have otherwise thought I'd be interested in. And a great by-product of the contest: reading the judge bios and finding new folks to follow on Twitter/Instagram!
