Does this book include bakers percentages with the recipes?  I just looked at the previews of it on Google and they don't show whether or not he gives the formulas.  Thanks.

Just finished the first part "the hunt"  very fun and quick read.  Kinda feel like planing a vacation around some of his stops.

I don't have a lot to add, since most has been said already. His story in first third of the book was nice read. As mentioned earlier, the second part contains recipes. I can't really comment on them, since I didn't try any. However I might try some of his recipes later(probably the sauce and topping recipes). Another reason why I didn't make a recipe yet is that I would have to convert the values to the metric system, but that shouldn't be a problem. It would have been nice if the baker's percentages would have been given, but I guess the targeted audience of the recipes doesn't use them. I also agree that it needs more pictures of the different pies.
