The Piglet is showing no signs of letting up. In Round 2, Decision 3, longtime writer for The New Yorker Tad Friend -- who may or may not be married to the co-founder of our company -- mediates the brawl between The A.O.C. Cookbook and Roberta's Cookbook.

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.

I'm so about the darkwing pizza at Roberta's and Mr. Friend's argument on passion for the food they create. But damn, this is a hard one.
