A quick addition to the previous post: If you want to join the tester list, write to me at [email protected] . However, please first read the previous post for more details. Thanks!
Also, some other exciting news: Ten Speed Press has decided to re-issue Crust & Crumb, my first James Beard Award-winning book, in a softcover edition. This means the price has come down and, hopefully, it will find a new audience among those who do not yet have it. I get e-mails even now, ten years after its original publication, from people who say they love it even more than The Bread Baker's Apprentice (the BBA, as it is known in cyber world). It does cover similar artisan methodology as the BBA, but there are many formulas in C&C that are not in the BBA. Together, the two books form a sort of complete artisan bread collection. The lower price ($18.95 cover price, as opposed to $29.95 for the hard cover edition) also makes it a nice gift option. Thank you Ten Speed Press for this new edition! As someone who buys a lot of bread books, I'm always happy when the price comes down!
