Twice!!! Not only did I purchase the most expensive set of cookbooks ever by buying Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking (stupid #1). I then was too eager / greedy to wait for it in the UK so I purchased it at Amazon.com in the USA and had it shipped to unknown location, deep in the southern states of America (my mom’s house). Where I thought she could pop it on a plane and forward it on to me the UK (stupid #2).
Here are the physical characteristics of this order:
Product Dimensions: 18.4 x 15.4 x 14.6 inches
Shipping Weight: 46.1 pounds
Basically it is a block of wood that is a foot and half square and weighs almost 50lbs. Sorry Mom…
I am now trying to figure out how to get this block of wood from my mom’s to the UK, looks like it will take another couple of weeks until I can start reading – let alone reviewing this in any way.
