I know how stressful it can be to find just the recipe you were looking for, but having to spend time converting doses and cooking times.

Sometimes it is so annoying that it makes you give up !!!

On this post, I would like to make some clarifications regarding the conversion from the metric system (Italian) to the customary one and to the different measurements that are used around the world.

As you know, for me as an Italian, it is a habit to think and write my recipes using the metric system. But since my main goal is to make the delicacies of Italian cuisine known abroad and bring the lovers of my “Bel Paese” closer to Italian culinary traditions, I decided to put at you disposal a few conversion charts of weights and measures that I hope will be useful for you to follow the dosages of my recipes.

Temperature Conversion Chart

As you may know, in Italy and practically throughout Europe, the temperature system is in Celsius degrees, while in the Anglo-Saxon countries and in the United States the Fahrenheit system is used exclusively. If anyone would like to deepen the topic, find a lot of explanations here.

So here is the Celsius – Fahrenheit conversion table

Liquids Conversion Chart

As far as liquids are concerned, things get a little complicated: it must be remembered that each element has its own specific weight so it is impossible to give an exact conversion applicable to everything.

Here below a Metric, Cup and Imperial System Conversion Table

Weights Conversion Chart

The Ounce too is one of the units of mass used in the United Kingdom and in other Anglo-Saxon countries, including the United States.

One ounce is equivalent to 28.35 grams (28.3495231 to be exact).
