If you find an error not listed here, please contact me so I can review it and include it!

The underlined word or words are the word or words that should be corrected, updated, or added.

page 23 — 1983 should be 1893

page 81 — Preservation Pointer: Marilyn should be spelled as Marillyn

page 119 — Variation: Use 1-1/2 cups sea salt per gallon of water for the brine.

page 210 — No-Knead Sourdough Bread, Step 8: Move on to Step 9.

page 216 — Olive and Feta Swirl Bread: ingredients should include 1/4 cup sliced olives
Step 2 should say “Sprinkle with feta cheese, olives, za’atar or thyme, and sea salt.”
