The Piglet—inspired by The Morning News' Tournament of Books—is where the 16 most notable cookbooks of the year face off in a NCAA-style bracketed tournament. Watch the action and weigh in on the results!

I had a look at the piglet this morning. Absurd review. Now I see 0 comments. Must be a glitch in the system, their were plenty in the AM, almost all negative. Oh well, won't spend any more effort with this.
