On page 181, the Basic Pie Dough recipe has an error. It reads 1 cup vegetable shortening. If you look at the previous text you'll see that this doesn't agree with the proportions of butter to shortening, and fat to flour that were described. It needs to only be 1/2 cup shortening. This gives the proper proportions of 2:3 shortening to butter and 2:1 flour to fat. I've tried the dough both ways. Trust me, the correction is better!
I think that the oven temperature for Ciabatta bread is incorrect. I set my oven to 500, I even used an oven thermometer and the bread was badly burned well before the time listed. May want to keep that in mind when trying this recipe.
