This is a widely available book. I would be surprised if you couldn't find it at Amazon, as well as at big bookstores like B and N . I did see it advertized for cheap in the Jessica catalog and it would make me mad if it wasn't in stock!

I have had one for many years and I still read it all the time. It's probably the best readily accessable technical resource book I have seen.

Jessica DIDN'T have it. At first when I orfdered it, there was no indication that it wasn't in stock. I waited a month for it to arrive. When I called them, that is when they told me that it wasn't in stock!! I was pissed after waiting all that time and finding that out!!!

Cooking.com doesn't have the latest one either. Didn't try B&N yet. I thought they'd be out of it also.

Amazon says 8th edition hasn't been released yet, so that's probably why it's impossible to find.

"Availability: This item has not yet been released. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives. Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. "

I saw JB advertizing but that must have been 7th edition.

I think some booksellers sell stock they don't have on hand. On eBay these people usually have thousands of books for sale. That is often a clue.
GoodCook book club offers it for about $50. Still more than I would spend.
Have you added the eBay search to your favorites so they will email you when one becomes available?

Why in the Sam Hill do they do that?

That is very annoying when I could have looked someplace else in the meantime! It wastes my time and theirs.

Target is also notorious for doing that! I will not deal with Jessica Biscuit in the future because of that! I'll look someplace else.

Thank you ever so much for doing that!! I owe you one.

Just try to get a box just big enough for it to fit in, tape it closed and write the addresses on it. Bring it to the post office so that they can weight it and charge you accordingly. Thanks.

The 8th edition?

Usually Amazon is good about getting things out immediately and they say it hasn't been released yet.

Jessica's Biscuit says: The Professional Chef, 8th Edition
by Culinary Institute of America
Hardcover - 1232 pages Not yet released by the publisher.
Anticipated Release Date: August 2006. You may pre-order this title.


If you have an early release, can I have one too?? Seriously!
