Amazon lists the price as being $461.62, but they say it isn't in stock. I checked several other sources and some places want even more enormous sums for this set. One place wants over $1000.00 for it while Powells, usually a reasonable source, wants $702.
If this book had been Medievalist Cuisine, I would be willing to fork over the Amazon price, but for something modern? No. However, if you should decide to purchase this, let us know and hopefully you will be willing to share some of the recipes with us.

What is the cheapest anyone has seen this at?
I have been thinking of buying it (mostly because I think Johnna is right it will be "one of those books") but I REALLY don't want to spend $650. I have seen it for $485. ANyone else?
