Dear 100 Hour Board,
What's our elevation in Provo and do we need to use high altitude cooking here???

A: Dear forgetful,

The average elevation in the valley is about 4,500 feet. High altitude cooking rules apply.
Though, I kinda disregard it with pasta, and it's still yummy.

A: Dear Finally remembered,

It's true that high altitude cooking does apply. Interestingly, though, I have been baking here for, mmmm...several years and have never paid attention to high altitude recipe changes. This has never caused me problems, as those who taste my baked goods can attest. Not that I don't occasionally have a cooking disaster. It's just that it's rarely an issue of failing to follow high altitude instructions. If you've been cooking without a problem, then don't worry about it.
