A Week's Worth of Recipes with A Girl and Her Pig

February  7, 2014

In anticipation of this year's Piglet, we'll be sharing articles, recipes, and tips from past winners. Following The Art of Living According to Joe Beef is A Girl and Her Pig. Learn more about this year's tournament here, or head to Provisions to add some of the titles to your bookshelf!

Today: A look back on a week's worth of recipes from April Bloomfield's A Girl and Her Pig.

Over the past week, we accomplished a lot with A Girl and Her Pig. We perfected an old classic, traveled the world on a meatball, and even moved one degree closer to Kevin Bacon. To top it all off, JJ Goode dished on the Piglet, hopped on April's game-changing porridge bandwagon, and gave us the inside track on forthcoming cookbook titles. What's left to do, you ask? Take one more look back at all the delicious madness that ensued. Enjoy.
