- The glossary of ingredients differentiates between brown (yellow?) and black mustard seeds and gives no info if they are interchangeable. Recipes call for "mustard seeds" with no further clue.
- I do not like the way that the page numbers are at the top on the left-hand page only, looking like a chapter number.
- There are some editing errors.
