    Elements of Pizza and The Pizza Bible were both recommended to me, both go through different styles. If you only wanted one, I'd probably go for Elements of Pizza as the The Pizza Bible feels a bit 'American', but that's only personal opinion.

    The Neapolitan Pizza: A Scientific Guide about the Artisanal Process is meant to be good but I haven't read it.

    https://www.pizzamaking.com also apparently good according to my brother!

    an option would have been to hold people at the first checkpoint to reverse the differences in time from setting off in waves.

    From the race manual:

    To comply with French regulations groups of 20 riders will start at 10 minute intervals from the Capra Velo bike shop. It is expected that all riders will assemble at 43.461725, -1.541116 from 04:45 and riders will be called to start from 05:00 local time based on their cap number which will be completely random as this is the first edition of the race.

    No I sold it to someone a few years ago. When they arrived to pick it up they weren't interested in me telling them that it might be too big for them.

    Yeah, I'm thinking about that too. Have tried to go to morocco a couple of times so it would be a good motivation.

    We were thinking Ikea carcasses with Plykea fronts and worktops as the carcasses have felt 'much of a muchness' but the doors on everything we have seen so far have all felt a bit of a let down.

    Good to know about the lack of service void. There is currently no plumbing in the room which the kitchen is going in and we are hopefully raising the base units higher than normal which will mean there's some extra space under the units for routing pipes ect.

    I've been using the recipes from Flour Water Salt Yeast, and the third picture is the Pain de Campagne recipe which is

    370g white flour
    30g whole wheat flour
    310g water
    10.5g salt
    1g instant yeast
    180g levain (50g old levain, 200g white flour, 50g whole wheat flour, 200g water)

    Which I think comes out as 78% hydration...?
