Cooking Measures
Most of our recipes use traditional Imperial measures.

Below we list the most common examples without going into too much detail - just the information you need. Note that unless a measure is given differently as specified in the text of a particular recipe - all measures are 'level'.

Tablespoons, Dessertspoons, and Teaspoons are precise measurements, which are level, and may not correspond to the size of your modern home cutlery. You can buy exact measures from any good cookery shop, but it is easier to buy old style traditional British spoons, which will be of the correct size.This would probably be the type of cutlery your Grandmother used.
