Crispy Potatoes & a Taco Debacle: Here’s What Happened in Piglet Round 1

The Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks is here! Inspired by The Morning News’ Tournament of Books, this annual event is where the 16 most notable cookbooks of the year face off in a rousing, NCAA-style bracketed competition. Watch the action and weigh in on the results!

Hello ladies and germs, and welcome to the 2019 Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks! I am 2013 Piglet loser Allison Robicelli, and I am back this year recapping all the fun you may have missed while doing other things like “spending time with your family” or “paying attention to your job.” This is one of my favorite projects of the year because, as a cookbook author and previous nominee, I now get to turn the tables and critique you, Food52’s madcap gallery of passionate commenters! THE DAY IS MINE, SUCKAS.
