Second Printing and Errata
“Errata” is a fancy way of saying corrections in a book or article. The 4-Hour Chef is going into a second printing, and here are a few screw-ups we caught and are fixing:
p. 472: Tanya Harding should be Tonya Harding
p. 500 (2nd to last line): eying should be eyeing
Under Technology, (left-hand column, second line from the bottom), the sentence should read “It has a surface that can be lowered to -30ºF.” Currently it reads “45ºF.
p. 573: Correct spelling of Liechtenstein in the shorthand recipes.
p. 606: In the quote attribution at the top of the page, correct the spelling of Rain Man–should be two words.
page 56: 12O+ lbs should be 120+lbs [changing the O to a zero]
page 192: The words “Pickup 13” have been removed from image
page 534: 455 g to 454 g (in chart and in text)
page 538: 455 g to 454 g (in chart and in text)
Tonya Harding AND Rain Man in a cookbook? Oh, yes. Not to mention Calvin & Hobbes and Alessandra Ambrosio, too…
