Good suggestion Cameron
I have cleaned up the text slightly.
I think the cookbook is getting very long and will be come increasingly difficult to keep up to date (several link outs that are no longer current, draft parts etc), I wonder whether we should have a look at restructuring to make it more sustainable? Perhaps we could discuss this once we have the 2019 selection out of the way?
