God, I just become so frustrated whenever I take a fantastic cookbook with great recipes and photos in my hand. It starts with
excitement when I choose one of the recipes for the day and then take a
look at ingredients...
Pounds, ounces, grams, cups, spoons, Fahrenheit, Celsius, gas marks, pints,... You see what I mean?
Before we moved to UK I only ever used metric units, so I didn't need to worry about all of this. But from the first day in the kitchen here
in England I always need to convert something into something. It is
indeed very frustrating and time-consuming.
But that is not all! Before you can even start with cooking and baking you need to shop around like mad to get all these spoons, cups,
pints, measuring glasses,...
Our kitchen is well equipmened now, I believe. And when I started my coffee and food website I made a page about these conversions, which by the
way is still growing, to help myself and other people who are struggling
out there with the same problem :)
After all, there is a number of people who are familiar with empirical but struggle with metric units. So let's end this struggle
once and for all then!
