Hi Judydawn
When you say the new edition of EDC 2013 - do you mean the 2nd edition reprint? When I tried to purchase the latest one this week I was told that it might be a long time before they do a reprint that fixes the errors.

I have 4 ordered charlieboy and they are supposed to be the second print of the new 2013 EDC.  The SA Manager suggested I wait a couple of weeks for them rather than take the one with a few mistakes in it.  Who told you that?  Maybe they want to get rid of what they have on hand - I certainly would question them seeing as I was told a reprint is underway.

Chookie, this is what you wanted to know about the errors in the first printing of the new book.

Thanks Judydawn I don't have a consultant anymore so HO put me on to another. At first she said wasn't aware there was any errors. I assured her there was, she then rang me back and said there was only a couple of mistakes so was encouraging me just to get that. I had to say a good 5 times that I am not interested in the first print. This is when she told me I can wait but it will probably be a long wait.

I bought the new EDC recently and made the updated version of bolognaise sauce, which was somewhat difficult as I make the old EDC version by memory now (which is so modified anyway given the amount of veggies I disguise in it for my kids). I honestly have  to say I still prefer the old edition version only because I use far less olive oil than stated as well as speck instead of bacon.

I have just been given 3 of these books from HO for a giveaway competition - see here.  Please note a couple of errors in the new edition as under

Pea & Ham soup page 76 - use pepper to taste not 1 tblspn

Buttermilk scones page 145 - disregard reference in the method to water and yeast (it's not listed in the ingredient list)

They should have someone like Tenina to proof read these recipes. LOL!

Really - don't they edit these things at all???
It's just so unprofessional and, given the price they charge for the damn things, they should produce a much better product.

I am loving the new EDC - love the pages, love the pictures, love the fact it tells how many servings a recipe should make, love the size.... :D :D :D I think it is a much better book than the old one.  ;D

Tried the Thai hummus version today. It was delicious! Only had dried chillies so whizzed one of them up and just a squirt of lemon juice to taste.
