It's yet another showdown at The Piglet. In Round 1, Decision 7, The Art of Fermentation takes on Notes from the Larder and photographer Andrea Gentl keeps the opponents in line. 

Head here to read the decision, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section of the judgment! One lucky commenter will have a shot at scoring a copy of the winning book.
