The following chart gives the conversions from degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius (formerly known as Centigrade) recommended by the manufacturers of electric cookers.

225°F – 110°C

250°F – 130°C

275°F – 140°C


300°F – 150°C

: This table is an approximate guide only. Different makes of cooker vary and if you are in any doubt about the setting, it is as well to refer the manufacturer’s temperature chart. Check also on the position of food in the oven.

Comparisons of weights and measures:
It is useful to note that 3 teaspoons equal 1 tablespoon; the average English teacup is ¼ pint; the average English breakfast cup is ½ pint; a B.S.I. measuring cup, used in recipes, holds ½ pint or 10 fluid ounces.

It should ne noted that the American pint is 16 fluid ounces, as opposed to the British Imperial and Canadian pints which are 20 fluid ounces. The American ½ - pint measuring cup is 8 fluid ounces and is, therefore, equivalent to 2/5 British pint. In Australia, the metric system is now used, based on a 250 – milliliter cup. In America, standard cup and spoon measurements are used.

For quick and easy reference when buying food, it should be remembered that 1 kilogram (1000 grams) equals 2.2 pounds (353/4 ounces) – i.e. as a rough guide, therefore, one can assume that the equivalent of 1 pint is a generous ½ liter is 7/8 pint. As a rough guide, therefore one can assume that the equivalent of 1 pint is a generous ½ liter. In this Food section mainly milliliters and some deciliters have been used, i.e. sometimes you will find in a sauce 125 ml, used as an equivalent to ¼ pint, in this case it is because this rather more rounded amount is quite acceptance and we need more rounded amount is quite acceptable and we need to be familiar with both milliliters and deciliters.

A simple method of converting recipe quantities is to use rounded figures instead of an exact conversion, taking 25 grams to 1 ounce, and a generous ½ and 1 pint is 568 milliliters, it can be seen that these equivalents will give a slightly smaller finished dish, but the proportion of liquid to solids will remain the same and a satisfactory result will be produced.

Note: all recipes have been individually converted so that each recipe preserves the correct proportions.
