Thanks for the update. I'm listening to it now.

 

Just picked up Modernist Cuisine recently (ended up buying Modernist Cuisine at Home first) and am blown away. I'm going to simply have to buy Modernist Bread.

Just a heads up, looks like amazon.de and amazon.co.uk have the book reduced atm to 408.52€ or 425 GBP:

https://www.amazon.de/MODERNIST-BREAD-Nathan-Myhrvold/dp/0982761058

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Modernist-Bread-Science-Nathan-Myhrvold/dp/0982761058

 

not sure if that's an temporary thing or a permanent price reduction. This is as far as I see a bit cheaper for the europeans than the canadian amazon offer a few months ago.

after telling myself I definitely wouldn't buy from them again (after the errors in the first MC & the shipping damage when they sent out MC@H naked), I've bought.

 

There must be crack addicts with more self control than me!

Update from Modernist Bread blog.  You can see cover photos but publication date was pushed back to fall 2017.

I had missed this update, but honestly I'm glad it was delayed. I anticipate running my oven full tilt after it arrives, and summer is not an ideal time to be doing that in Oklahoma!

a note of sorts :

 

some time ago :

 

Odd:

 

Modernist Baking Amazon  USA  vs CA :

 

USA      $ 593    list    625     USD

 

CAN     $ 532     list    810     CDN

 

and i just checked this :

 

 

https://www.amazon.ca/Modernist-Bread-Science-Nathan-Myhrvold/dp/0982761058/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494194006&sr=8-1&keywords=modernist+bread

 

$ 724 CDN

 

to those of our Friends N of the Border :

 

are they honoring your lower price ?

 

Yikes !

I'm not north of the border but almost certainly Jeff is honoring the guarantee.  But the amazon guarantee is if the preorder price goes down you get the lower price.

 

For those who pre-ordered at CA$532, I think that they are quite safe.

 

As for the US, the current amazon price is $545.37.  My price is $500.  The release date listed is 10/24/2017.

The release date has been updated to Nov. 7, 2017 now. At least it will be plenty cool enough by then to run the oven!

Here's the notice I got this morning -

The following title(s) decreased in price:

Modernist Bread: The Art and Science
              Price on order date: $532.47
        Price charged at shipping: $437.18

$95.29 is your total savings under our Pre-order Price Guarantee. 

Thanks for shopping at Amazon.ca, and we hope to see you again soon.

 

So I guess at some point the price dropped and we didn't notice it.

 

And just to really rub it in - this is Canadian dollars! Sorry guys.

 

It was however - supposed to have shipped on October 24th.

I forgot I have a coupon applied!  When I look at the invoice my price is actually US$485.00 -- plus tax, of course.  Shipping date is still the 7th.

We've just announced that the top prize in our "Baking from Modernist bread" contest is a free copy of the book (and an autographed bookplate provided by The Cooking Lab). All you have to do to enter is bake one of the recipes we post and then post a photo and description of your results (good or bad!).

I ordered MC:Bread on September 27, 2016... Since I don't have any shipment notification yet from Amazon I'm guessing it's not going to be delivered on it's release date here in the USA.  

 

We have a steam oven - it's also a convection oven - so when I notice they have a section on convection ovens with steam I'm pretty excited.  We use our steam oven almost daily to make bread - awesome bread - but it's 5 mins a day artisan bread - so nothing that exciting.  I suspect that will soon change.

 

At least we'll see MC Bread in the same year as the calendar which we got last year - and teasing us with pictures.

Our steam oven is a Thermador model linked here.  When we remodeled our kitchen a few years ago we found this and I had to convince my wife we should get it - as it's the most expensive appliance in our kitchen.  We use it more often then our big oven...  And it's awesome at boiling a lot of eggs at once.  Also it can reheat leftover dishes such that they don't seem like leftovers, especially with rice.

 

Here's a shot of our oven stack just after the remodel: 

Notice there is no microwave.

 

 

RE: MC: Bread it has updated - expected to ship tomorrow - Arriving Thu, Nov 9  I do have prime.

      I got an e-mail this morning about the Modernist team's next project - pizza! 
       
      Modernist Pizza is Underway!
      After taking on the world of bread, we’re thrilled to announce the topic of our next book: pizza. Modernist Pizza will explore the science, history, equipment, technology, and people that have made pizza so beloved.

      Authors Nathan Myhrvold and Francisco Migoya, with the Modernist Cuisine team, are currently at work conducting extensive research and testing long-held pizza-making beliefs; this quest for knowledge has already taken them to cities across the United States, Italy, and beyond. The result of their work will be a multivolume cookbook that includes both traditional and innovative recipes for pizzas found around the globe along with techniques that will help you make pizza the way you like it.

      Modernist Pizza is in its early stages, and although we’ve begun to dig in, we still have a lot of work ahead of us. Although we can’t guarantee when it will arrive at your door just yet, we can promise that this book will deliver the complete story of pizza as it’s never been told before.

      In the meantime, we would love to hear from you as we continue to research pizza from around the world. Contact pizza@modernistcuisine.com to tell us about your favorite pizzerias and their pizza. Connect with us on social media to get all the latest Modernist Pizza updates.

      FYI. On todays Food Programme, BBC Radio 4 which will be podcasted I think tomorrow after its repeat. He outlined the Bread tome, and I found very interesting the economics of bread. It's all a bit beyond me as a Coeliac most of it is out of my reach. One can listen to it on Radio 4 website. Furthermore R4 is my constant companion and the last bastion of civilisation

      Tonight I finished Kristen Kish Cooking, Recipes and Techniques.  Alas these are restaurant or competition dishes, and while I would probably enjoy most of them, I saw nothing that I am compelled to cook.  Nor for that matter am competent to cook.  I commend her for sharing them.  I appreciate her definition of culinary terms.  My only gripe is that after assuring us she uses a Packojet at work, her ice cream recipes call for a home ice cream maker.
       
      Kristen moved me.  I was taken by her back story as a gay interracial adoptee.  I can relate to that.
