So what's the relationship between the books "The Professional Chef" and "The New Professional Chef"? The latter was recommended on this fourm some time ago. I've been looking for it on a store shelf (I'm a bit hesitant to buy a cookbook or book on cooking without having seen one in person), but haven't found one.

Any comments about the relationship between the books or preferences are welcome!

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!


I would have probably kept the order intact had I known that the first time around.

But I was so pissed off after having waited almost a month, then calling them and finding that out!!!

No, just the 6th edition. It's the "New Professional Chef". How much different can the 8th edition be?

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.

I believe it was shipped out yesterday or today from where I work. My best friend works at the reception desk & she packaged it up & shipped it for me. It probably went UPS. Since we're not that far away from each other, you'll have it real soon.

Confusing.

I think "The New Professional Chef" is the 6th edition of the same CIA textbook. It hadn't been updated in over 25 years, so they added "New" to the name for that edition. I think.

The 7th and 8th editions went back to the original name.

Corinne -- is your 6th edition called "New?"

It's a fantsatic book if you are really into the culinary arts.

It's title is the NEW P.C. I think the copyright is 1996 so I guess it's 10 years old but I haven't had it for that long! I wonder when the 7th edition came out & what changed!

Corinne,

Remind me to pay attention, as you said in your earlier post that it was "new."

The 7th came out in 2001, I think.

I'm assuming that newer stuff is added to the book when each and every edition is written and published.

Just like the regular cookbooks when THEY are republished every few years.

Case in point- the Betty Crocker Cookbook. That particular cookbook has been revised again and again and again, about several dozen or more times since its first introduction in the '50s, to include more recipes and improved prep and cooking techniques.
