I ordered Feb 16...I really hope mine ships today

I ordered Feb 17, if Amazon's delivery estimate of 4/18 is right that feels like we're on schedule. People who ordered two weeks before us are getting their books two weeks earlier.

My delivery estimate was up until this morning 4/15 so you might get yours sooner. Now it is April 6. I ordered Feb 12.

Did Amazon email you guys to say it was getting bumped up or did it just happen?

No email yet. The status just changed to shipping soon and the delivery date changed.

I havent' had an email notification, I just checked my list of orders online after reading the last few posts here and lo and behold my ship date was updated. Maybe they don't send out emails til later in the day or in middle of the night - I had a couple of notices about another order that showed up that way.

No email either but I just checked after reading your post. My shipping has also updated from Aug to April 5th. Looks like there was no issue with changing my shipping method.

Great, now all day I'm going to be refreshing my amazon order page and not get any work done :rolleyes:

You and me both.

Feb 21 here, estimated delivery April 14, no change so far.

Do you think if I hit "refresh" 25 times a minute it'll make things go faster? :biggrin:

Woohoo!!!!! Mine is shipping April 5 or 6!!!!!! to arrive on the 7th or 8th.

I'm heading to Lancaster PA on Saturday for the PMCA which means Anna will have a good 4 days with it before I get to look at it - I may be trying to pry it out of her cold dead hands when I get back!

Updated shipping date (April 5 - April 6) and even better: I've just been charged from Amazon.ca the CDN $390. They "are preparing these items for shipment and this portion of your order cannot be canceled or changed."

Interestingly Amazon UK now showing out of stock and £375.25 my delivery date 5 - 6th April. Worst thing is I will not be home so it will fail, and way OTT heavy to have sent to work so will have to reschedule (Telling my manager I need to work from home as I'm waiting for a repair is one thing.....then again modernist mac and cheese as a bribe could work LOL)

...but hopefully Nathan wasn't aware of this an the Modernist team can release a printable version

...The publishers have the right to protect their Valuable Intellectual Property, and any discussion of methods to bypass their protection are a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (in the US, at least.)

I agree, both philospohically and legally, but I'm wracking my brain trying to think of a downside to allowing the index to be printable. It's already viewable to anyone with an internet connection. It can be downloaded, emailed, torrented, reposted, etc.

What's the problem with a paper copy?

Cant wait!

Mine is still showing 'Not yet shipped', but the date has moved to today/tomorrow - this seems like a good sign!

Got my iota carageenan, bought a pressure cooker last Saturday ... I couldn't be much more ready.

      I just received a copy of "The Cook's Book - Concise Edition" edited by Jill Norman, and now I'm curious, what's the difference to the full edition? Supposedly it has 648 pages compared to 496 in this edition, and it appears to be much larger in size if the info on us.dk.com is correct. Other than that I can't find any info what the difference might be. It's a neat book with lots of photos about techniques etc, and lots of recipes. As with any DK book production values are high.
      If the contents are the same, I'm happy with the smaller version, but I'd really like to know what I might be missing on those 150 or so pages. If it's just filler, I don't care. If it's some fantastic recipes, I do care....
      Anybody here know both editions? Google was so far of no help. Lots of the full edition are to be had used as well, I'd be happy giving this one as a gift and ordering the full edition, if it's worth it.
      Thanks!

      Say you were rounded up with a group of folks and either had a skill to offer in exchange for a comfy room and some other niceties or were sent off to a slag heap to toil away in the hot sun every day for 16 hours, what 3 books would you want to take with you to enable you to cook and bake such fabulous foodstuffs that your kidnappers would keep you over some poor schlub who could cook only beans and rice and the occasional dry biscuit?

      I am interested in getting some cookbooks that cover the basics of pastry and baking--not bread, necessarily, but dessert, cakes, cookies, etc. I searched a few other cookbook threads but did not have luck on finding books on pastry.
      My interest is in fairly classic French and European style baking, and I need a book that covers technique. Pictures would also be much appreciated--I like both the step by step pix or great pictures of the end product.
      Right now, I have Desserts and Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Herme. (I love these and have had good results from the recipes, but feel I should start with a more classic approach.) La Varenne Pratique has provided some good starting points, but I would like to find a book with more focus on baking.
      I was thinking about the Payard book. Any comments? Suggestions would be much appreciated! In case it applies, I am a home cook and am slightly more skilled than a total beginner.
      Thanks!

      Thanks for putting up this forum 🙂
      I would like to bake using a combination of sous vide and a conventional oven. Would it be possible to put the dough in a vacuum bag cook it sous vide at 37C for the dough to raise optimal and then put it in a conventional oven?
      Thanks

      Congratulations are due to Fuchsia Dunlop, whose "Food of Sichuan" has just been published in a Chinese language version - a rare honour here. I've ordered a couple of copies as gifts for local friends who loved the Engish version, but struggled with some language issues.
