On New Cookbooks

I posted a couple of weeks ago about how Santa was very generous this last Christmas. And he was!

Having had a couple of weeks to digest the volumes I noticed a big change with this years crop of books. Most of them now list the weights of ingredients. 6 oz flour...8 oz Sugar... 2 Grams Yeast.

Seems North America is catching up to Europe.

This is a great thing. As baking is tasty chemistry... anything that can make the final outcome more predictable is a great thing! Now if we can finally get the temperature of the perfect room temperature butter.....
