With access to recipes from all around the world, one of the frustrations I found when baking and cooking is trying to convert other country’s measurements to Australian measurements. Australia uses the metric system, so everything is in litres, millilitres and grams and kilos. This can make it tricky to convert measurements from countries that use pounds, ounces, gallons and pints; even grandma’s treasured old recipes.
I love to try new recipes and have a tendency not to follow too closely to the exact measurements anyway. But I have had numerous disasters that have gone to the chickens because even though I was a tad carefree with the recipe, it’s completely flopped due to incorrectly converting the measurements.
So, Em and I came up with a solution that is so handy and pretty, I’ve put it on display in my kitchen.
