I know I occasionally use terms that may not make sense to people who are new to cooking and so with that in mind, here’s a list of some of the terms I often use ! I will update it with things as and when you send me gripes comments asking what the heck “such and such” means! A classic example is what I mean when I use a lower case letter vs an upper case letter in my recipes. So, without further ado – here are some explanations of things I commonly use in my recipes:
t = teaspoon
T = Tablespoon
c = cup
1/4lb of butter = 1 stick
The “holy trinity” is processed garlic, ginger and chilli.
Available from your local supermarket, oddly its often in the vege dept.
