Conversions for our books for USA customers

Thanks for purchasing our books – we hope you love them as much as we do!

If there is anything at all in the book that is not clear to you, or if you have any question whatsoever about our recipes, please contact us through the website.

Our book is written in Australian metric measures, where 1 tablespoon = 20 ml and 1 cup = 250 ml, which differ from the USA imperial measures.

There are also some terms that differ and we have tried to find them all…if not, please let us know ASAP.

‘Monday Morning Cooking Club’ in the softcover now has a conversion table in the back. ‘The Feast Goes On’ has imperial and metric measurements throughout.
