Got mine today.

It arrived in Australia with an outside Amazon box which was so bent out of shape that it wasn't sealed any longer.

Thinking the worst, I opened it to find everything in perfect condition :smile:

Another "nice to have" would have been more "Best Bets" tables. I find them one of most useful items in the original volumes, and simpler tables could have been included here.

The things I found most useful out of MC were the tables for things like frying batters and pickles etc. where you would move down the table for the different types of batter/pickle and then across the table for the ingredients for a particular batter/pickle. I use these tables alot!

This would have worked really well for things like the different pestos as well as the infused fats and oils. ... maybe risottos as well?

... but I'm biased, I do love a good table :biggrin:

What page is that on?

My copy has finally arrived... and it good condition! I plan to have a date with my MCAH tomorrow, since it's a public holiday here and the weatherman promises us a lot of rain...

I do not have MC and so I'm awestruck with the few pages I've read :-)

Hi everyone,

We hope that you are all enjoying Modernist Cuisine at Home and that if you had any difficulties with Amazon Canada or Amazon UK they've been taken care of.

We are going back to press already, and need to send our printer any corrections for the second printing. So far we haven't spotted many. If you have seen any, whether they are in text or in recipes, please send them to me at info@modernistcuisine.com this week. We appreciate the support this community has always given us in this regard.

Happy cooking!

Judy

I just received my copy of MoCuAHo from Powell's Books in Portland OR, which is one of my favourite book stores in the world. Price $98, shipping to Australia $13, very reasonable IMO (free US shipping, I believe). It did take over 2 weeks to arrive and there was no tracking but it was packed well and didn't suffer on the journey. Just letting you know about the option.


It's almost never bad to feed someone.

I used the 50% off promo code that was emailed to me and bought the recently released ebook edition for my ipad. There are a few new recipes and some of the tools available to make scaling your recipes make things a little easier on you when you need to upscale/downscale a recipe. Was well worth the $40 to be able to keep the book with me at all times conveniently.

I got that too and already checking out the free chapter on my PC. Have not forked over the $40 yet...but most likely I will based on what I've seen and on how convenient and flexible having the ebook companion version would be. In the FAQ section it seems like this version fleshes out a lot of the recipes, has more pictures, interactive materials and of course videos.

Question is, will I be able to use it on my Android device when Inkling releases their app or would I have to re-purchase? I am not clear on that but I believe I should be able to just use it on any device with an Inkling app.

I tried to register today to no avail. It kept kicking me out. Maybe it is the iPad. Might try later on the laptop.

I managed to download the ebook. The download using the discount code was not a particularly intuitive process.

The ebook itself is quite nice, and should be a good companion to the printed tome.

I didn't get the email, so thank you for posting this. I just downloaded the ebook and installed the Inkling app. I was surprised that the download process was not intuitive to navigate. Had it not been for the 50% discount, I would have bailed.

I got errors yesterday because I couldn't remember my password. IIRC, the screen to retrieve my password only had a spot for my email address. Submitting that screen returned an error. I can't remember the message, it came up on a page all by itself. I can't remember what I finally did to fix that. Whatever it was, I finally got a screen to enter my email address and to type in some letters to prove that you're a real person. I believe the error before was because that box didn't show up. And, yes, I was working on an iPad. Then my mini-Mac. Then a Windows laptop. All had the same error.

Good luck. Maybe this was all on purpose so that you'll feel as though you earned that 50% off.

I doubt its on purpose. but I recall in registering it struck me as a bit of a quirky site.

my browser remembers my password, thats what saves me.

BTW Ive yet to get an email. the code appeared on the page at MC, but its only been a few hours.

      Has anyone used Valrhona Absolut Crystal neutral glaze particularly to thicken a coulis or to glaze a tart?  If so, how did you like it and is there another glaze you think worked as well but is less expensive or can be purchased in smaller quantities?

      Hello.
      I would like to buy some pectinex ultra sp-l.
      However I am worried about the temperature during the shipping time.
      I read that the storage temperature should be between 2 and 8 C. It works best from 15 to 50 C, and if it stays a lot of time in 25 C, it will gradually be deactivated.
       
      It needs a week to come here (Greece), then will it affect its abilities?
       
      Do you know if I can find a document somewhere that explains the gradual loss of power as a function of time and temperature?
      Did you have any experience with pectinex not working well due to bad storage?
       
      Thanks.

      Hello, folks, thanks for reading.
       
      My husband thinks, I should start selling my popcorn seasonings (which I make for my family), it’s a good product. But I'm not sure if it’s interesting to other people... So, what do you think, guys?
       
      Our story: 
      We’ve bought an air popper machine, but popcorn came out pretty tasteless. Then, we’ve bought different “popcorn seasoning” mixes... But it always ends with all the seasoning at the bottom of the bowl. Then, we've added butter, oil and so on before seasoning...  we got soggy, chewy popcorn. Lot’s of disappointments…
       
      When we almost gave up… the magic happened! I figured out the way to make seasonings that:
      Stick to popcorn, but not sticky to fingers (or T-shirt  , Easy to apply, May be pre cooked in bulk and stored… And popcorn appears crunchy, tasty, thoroughly covered with seasoning.  
      Sounds good, yep? Now, when I want to treat myself  - I only need 2 mins to turn tasteless popped popcorn to a real treat.  
      The only moment - it request 1 extra effort: after you toss it over popcorn, you need to microwave it for 1 min, and stir after.
       
      So, I was wondering, if you like popcorn like myself - would this seasoning be interesting for you to purchase? Are you ready for a little extra work (microwave & stir) in the goal to flavor popcorn, or it feels too much effort?
       
      As I have no experience in manufacturing and retail, your answers would help me to make a very important decision - to dive in or not... 
       
      Thanks in advance for your answers, it means the world to me.
