I bought a wonderful baking book called Baking with Passion from a London place called Baker & Spice.
All the temperatures and quantities are metric, of course.
Even though I'm Eurotrash and should know this, I have forgotten all my celsius and grammes measurements.
Does anyone have a favorite conversions website to recommend?
I'm lazy and let google do it
150 degrees celsius in fahrenheit (it automagically completes most of this)
300 grams in ounces
Before I got my kitchen scale, I used this site: http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/cookingc...
It's food-specific, which means you select the food and additional relevant details (ie brown or white sugar, etc), and then get a conversion. I've generally found it to be fairly reliable, although sometimes I find the categories a little confusing.
