Thanks to Macrina to have put it all down on paper for us.
I love the books though; I spent several days thoroughly reviewing and marking recipes that I am interested in making (very soon) after my hardcover copy (this book) arrived. I had just finished with that task when the paperback (the other book) arrived and very dismayed when I cracked the cover to see the exact same contents I'd just finished reviewing so thoroughly! I then compared the two side by side and the updated chapter is the only difference, other than format (paperback versus hardcover).
My advice is this; if you really prefer a hardcover cookbook, buy this version from a used bookseller. If you prefer paperback, buy the other version. Or, if you absolutely cannot live without the additional (short) chapter, buy the other one. I know the sunshine muffins featured in the updated chapter (in the paperback) are now on my list of things to bake, so it might be worth it after all. Just be sure to only buy one and not both, as I did.
My husband has cooked from the savory section of the book - the moroccan chicken tagine is one of his favorites - it's a great one-pot meal - as is the fried egg sandwich. Both are a bit of a process and he isn't super experienced in the kitchen, but he has no trouble following the recipes. The result is amazing.
