    Modernist Bread

    I messaged the team before prime day and this was the reply considering how few corrections there are this time I'm at a loss of whether to wait or not

    Modernist Bread

    With Modernist Cuisine I waited a couple of years and ended up with a copy from the 6th printing run the advantage of this was that all errors picked up in the erratta had been corrected in the print copy. I am looking to get modernist bread soon and wondered if someone had purchased it recently to check or if someone knew of hand if they have printed any additional corrected runs

    "Modernist Pizza"

    This could be interesting I cannot see how they could get another multi volume book on pizza. But I could see this being a Modernist Cuisine at home sized piece which would make abit more sense. As I seen to remember them saying that they weren't going to do a modernist bread at home this time round
  4. Thanks for that, based on the contents I think I may start with the seasoning book first as that probably would contain the most information that I can cross into other styles of cooking
  5. So worth getting then do I have to get the first one and work my through them or could I start with the first in the cutting series?
  6. I have been considering ordering some of the books from this series however I have been unable to find much in the way of reviews online and wondered if anyone here has had the chance to go through them https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/series/JCA/the-japanese-culinary-academys-complete-japanese-cuisine
  7. It's probably an unpopular opinion in some places. But I'd go for the metric system or at the very least ditch volumetric measurements for dry ingredients
  8. where subsequently corrected in the later ones and while I am sure some have probably been missed I can at least say in my checks the errors contained in the errata for modernist cuisine had been corrected before my copy was printed which print run these corrections where made I couldn't hazard a guess so depending on where and when someone's copy was printed there millage may vary. As for Alinea I did find an online errata for it which I have printed and slipped in the front of my copy but there are a lot fewer errors is than so referencing it would cause little to no issue
  9. It's nice to know that they are open to people pointing out errors. As for errors in Modernist bread I cannot comment as I'm still saving up so haven't ordered mine yet. So I'm hoping when I get mine it'll be like modernist bread and the errata will have already been released and subsequent books corrected
  10. That is true they also went to the hassle to get character recognition working so they are searchable.
  11. Hard but not impossible it was done with modernist cuisine and at home and with a little bit of google searching the torrents for either are not exactly hard to find
  12. I have to disagree with you on the hard to access aspect of the errata as one only has to type "modernist cuisine errata" into google and the top result is there errata page. They also offer a pdf version to allow it to be easily printed. As for fixing the issue for existing customers, you could look at the fact that they have offered an errata. Others have not, for example, the Alinea cookbook while has admittedly fewer errors as far as I am aware no official errata was released. I can also comment that they did actually act on the errors found I held off buying my copy for a while so I could save up for it resulting in my copy being one of the sixth printings and going through it tonight with the errata in the first 3 books at the very least the issues they had found had been corrected. This ultimately why I cancelled my preorder for modernist bread as I'm willing to wait for any errors found to be corrected. There is a reason why it is often said to avoid the first of something.
  13. It certainly looks an interesting and while I still haven''t got through my copy of modernist cuisine I think I may have to start saving up for this one and atleast that'll give me some time to figure out where I'm going to put it
  14. I got my copy of Eleven Madison Park: The Next-Chapter earlier this year and have enjoyed reading through it several times. As a result, I have been considering getting the version published in 2011 for Christmas, however, I am not sure if it is a duplicate of the recipe book included with the next chapter set. So I am wondering if somebody has access to both if they would be able to advise me whether the recipes are duplicated between the two books.
