Spoiler alert: In the final round of The Piglet, Food 52's annual tournament of cookbooks, chef Fergus Henderson picks April Bloomfield's A Girl And Her Pig over the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. Quote: "April Bloomfield has addressed food with the perfect split of time and place, and a true sense of genus loci." There was also a twist that there were other judges — including Gwyneth Paltrow co-conspirator Julia Turshen — for the final round. [Food52]
