Found a recipe you want to try but,
unfortunately, it only gives oven temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and
you cook by gas - what is the gas mark equivalent?
What is meant by "cook in a moderate oven"?
My new cooker has Celsius markings, how do I
convert my old recipes?
These are all queries I have received over the
past few months, so I thought this page may prove useful to others.
this is a guide only and not exact conversions.
As a rule of thumb Celsius is roughly
half the Fahrenheit temperature.
Fan assisted ovens are usually set
approximately 25 degrees Celsius (i.e. approximately 50 degrees
Fahrenheit) lower than others and cooking time is reduced by 10 minutes
for every hour of cooking time.
Different manufacturers and oven types do
vary, so always refer to your cooker instruction book.
If you would like this information
permanently to hand this apron will not only protect you from splashes
and spills, it puts a whole mass of essential information right where
you can access it straight away!
It includes; numeric conversions,
cooking times for vegetables, roasting times, freezing instructions,
defrosting times, a cooking glossary and loads more!
Of course this apron still serves its original purpose of keeping your
clothes clean and a place to wipe your dirty hands on, and is the ideal
gift for anyone that loves to cook!
