Cooking measurements in U.S. standard measures to metric conversion.
It’s good to have a reference to the metric equivalent as well for those who find it more familiar or convenient.
For practicality figures on all conversions are approximate, rounded closely. For example:
1 ounce = 28.349 grams, rounded down to 28 grams
1 cup – 8 fluid ounces = 236.588 ml. rounded up to 240 ml.
Don’t approach your recipe like a scientific engineering enterprise. Look at a painter. He doesn’t use a square, a measure or a compass to draw lines and arches.
You are an artist at work in your kitchen, creating.. You can’t and are not held to infinite precise cooking measurements calculations. Like a painter, you can always correct, adjust, should you stray out. That is why each dish is always an original.
