Come one, come all -- we want to know what you think about some of the year's best cookbooks!
Update: We still have testing slots available for Piglet Community Testing! If you're looking for an excuse to cook up a storm, now's the time. Details on how to compile your review -- as well as the available books -- can be found below.
Inspired by Food52 community suggestions and by the bumper crop of cookbooks out this year, we will be featuring a community cookbook review on each day of the Piglet. Want to get involved? Call dibs on your favorite cookbook in the comments, below (we're looking for up to 5 testers per book, so don't worry if someone else already claimed yours). The rest is simple: Get the book, test a few recipes by cooking a meal or two, and send your reviews by Monday, January 20th to [email protected]
Reviews should be under 500 words and explain what you liked about the book, why the recipes worked (or didn't), and what sets the cookbook apart from others. Most importantly, make it a great read. Just like we do for our contests, we'll pick the best community review for each book and feature it on the site. Now get cooking -- and be sure to tell us all about it!
