I believe this book falls into the latter category - especially given that it is a book you might refer back to repeatedly (the 2nd half is purely recipes.)
Thank you for your helpful comments. I know that some of the audiobooks I have listened to make extensive reference to diagrams, charts, tables, etc., which isn’t really practical while driving or exercising. :)

I see that Audible says, “When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.” I’m guessing that will contribute, but not be essential, while I’m listening.

For people who might be tight on budget, you can always save by borrowing (digitally) from your library.

The Overdrive/Libby app they use is actually pretty decent, and Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is on there!


Thanks for the tip. I used to get all my TV Seasons at the library..and had got away from that years ago. Nowadays I find myself buying absolutely TERRIFIC Cook books for $1each at second hand stores... Always liked the idea of having a separate room that was a library.

for people really into knowledge about food and cooking, please consider harold mcgee's "on food and cooking". . .

it is revered as a bible of culinary information

this will not be as accessible as other reference tomes, but if you like to geek out on stuff. . .this will blow your mind

the book jacket plaudits are like a who's who of michelin starred chefs and celebrity chefs. . .

if you are a fan of alton brown and good eats, this will be right in your wheel house. . .in the words of maaaaatt daaaamon, he will science the crap out of it. . .

Wow, it's been a while since I pulled one of these RFDeals.
That's a pretty sweet discount you got! Any reason why you didn't go with Moola instead of UGO for $100 + bonus $15 instead?

I thought it was dead too. There should be an option to see all the various buying options (the link should say X New from CDN$ ...). One of them has free Prime shipping at $30.55, but it says it won't ship until 1-2 months later. Not sure if this is considered "dead" or not.
