Purchase two copies of this book, one for self, one for friend in South America who does not use volume measurements. Was very disappointed to see the recipes in book were volume only as Redpath site recipes include both volume and metric for each recipe ingredient. Canada has been metric since 1970 which leaves this oversight more than perplexing. One can only assume Redpath for some reason published the book to attract the US market where volume is still used, instead of the universal market/Canada where metric is used, especially with the younger generation.
I do realize a metric equivalent chart is included in book but more often than not these charts fail to be true measure for measure. I do like the book, I also don't have a problem with volume versus metric as I'm familiar with both, but know my friend is not so will have to struggle trying to convert the recipes before attempting to bake. Honestly, if the book had included both volume and metric in recipe ingredients like their site, I would have given it a 5 star rating.
