The Piglet

The Piglet is Almost Here!

February 10, 2014

The Piglet is almost here! Head this way to learn how it all works and see the full line-up of books and judges, then score your own copies in Provisions to follow along!

Like little kids at Christmastime, we've been counting down the days. We've leafed through the 16 contestants, read all of your fabulous Community Picks reviews, and had our brackets ready for weeks. Finally, the Piglet is upon us.

You may have noticed the fancy button up at the top left of our homepage -- click it to follow all things Piglet, and read up on last year's tournament if you're new to the game. Starting this Wednesday, we'll be featuring one judged entry and one Community Pick every weekday until the winner is announced on March 4. Rumor has it we'll also be annoucing details about our Piglet party, too.

We'll meet you back here on Wednesday.


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!
