Bizarre Edition of The Taste of Bread
I decided to take the plunge and treat myself to two new bread books. So I bought Jeffrey Hamelman's "A Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes", and "The Taste of Bread" by Raymond Calvel.
I got them from Amazon and decided not to open the package until I was enjoying my morning hot, organic Italian Coffee. What a treat this would be!! Jeffrey Hamelman's book is terrific. "A Taste Of Bread" was horrific. Somehow, much to my dismay, the contents of the book were replaced by a text book called "The Rise Of Experimental Biology"! In other words......Course 101 on autopsies and victorian grave robbers. The cover was correct but the book itself had been replaced by something to show at Hallowe'en.
I wonder if anyone else has experienced this.
