For your info 1 cup equals 237 ml and 1 ounce equals 28 grams. Also the Food Lover's Companion has a conversion guide in the appendix. by peters48 on 2010-01-07 This looks interesting. While the recipe's from the UK's Guardian newspaper, it sure would be helpful if the ingredients weren't in grams and milliliters but in ounces, pounds, feet and increments we use over on this side of the Atlantic by 383 on 2010-01-08 I like the fact that they use weight based measurements, which are actually far more accurate than the volume measurements. I would suggest a digital scale. I guess the good thing about being a Canadian cook is that we are pretty bilingual when it comes to metric and imperial measurements.
