Can you feel it? There's excitement brewing in the Food52 office -- and it's not because someone brought in cookies. It's because the Piglet tournament of cookbooks kicks off this Wednesday. To prepare ourselves, we're taking a stroll down memory lane with some of this year's Piglet contestants and some of the questions we've asked them.

Before the tournament starts, read up on what our contestants have to say. We're certain that revisiting the wisdom of these cookbook wizards will not only help us patiently bide time until this year's tournament begins, but will also give us inspiration for our very own culinary throwdowns.
