On February 25th, we'll be celebrating this year's Tournament of Cookbooks at the Highline Loft. There'll be snacks, good friends, and best of all -- we'll announce the winner(!) before the official judgment is posted on this lovely site the next day. We hope you'll join us!

Adam Sachs, one of this year's Piglet Judges and contributing editor at Bon Appetit, will be our MC for the evening. 

10% of general admission ticket sales will go to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City* for Sandy Relief efforts -- or, go Whole Hog and an extra $5 of your ticket sale will go to the Mayor's Fund! (Also included in the ticket prices are raffle tickets to win prizes from Terrain Café, Liddabit Sweets, and OXO!)

Terrain Café will be preparing dishes from the two finalist cookbooks, and more savory and sweet treats will be provided by our friends at:




And we'll all be staying refreshed with drinks from our sponsors below.


Leave your collection of this year's contenders at home! A few of the authors will be there to sign books, so all you need is a pen. Virtually the entire list of cookbooks in the Piglet will be provided by:

It's going to be grand. We hope to see you there! For tickets, click here.

*The Mayor's Fund is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit and retains no administration fee. One hundred percent of donations go directly to relief efforts and organizations to help New Yorkers in need.






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 wish I could go! It's sure to be a great time. Too bad Portland is so very far from New York.

We so wish you could! It's too bad we can't have another party, west coast edition.
