This book and the review really caught my interest.. I will most likely buy the book as I love bread books of all kinds..
I do have a question or so for any of you that have this book..
I did some investigating on the book and found that it was originally published in 1990 and of course had a different cover..
The book that is pictured in this Cheftalk review was according to Amazon.ca and Chapters/Indigo.ca, repackaged and expanded, then republished in May 2007..
So.. That makes me curious about the contents of this latest edition.. How many original recipes are revised in the book? Do any of you that have purchased the latest edition of this bread book have the older one to compare it with?
I noticed this with another old cookbook that I loved but had lost in a fire. The book was no longer in print and almost impossible to find..
When I did finally find the cookbook, there was two editions available, the original, published 1968 (the one I once had) and a revised expanded edition, published 1981..
I ended up buying them both as I was quite leary about the revised edition messing with my favorite Jamaica Black fruitcake recipe!
To sum this up.. So far I have not noticed any recipes being omitted from the revised edition of this book, but I have noticed that some of the recipes have been revised/altered here and there..
I am very glad I bought them both.. :D
