Wise Words from our Piglet Community Picks

February  8, 2014

The Piglet is starting this Wednesday, and we're happy as pigs in -- well, you get the idea. In anticipation of this year's tournament, we're taking a look back at our past coverage of the 2014 Community Picks.

With a mere 5 questions, we learned a lot from these multi-talented chefs and authors, and we have the sneaking suspicion that we have even more to glean from a second read. So let's go ahead and get to know our Community Picks all over again -- we could use the mental warm-up before the real games begin.
