Europeans like cooking too

Add an inconspicuous button to show metric instead of imperial measurements. That would make me use this site more often.

    I’m always happy to get great suggestions

    Thanks! We've been grappling with this. Ideally, we would love to have a whole mirror site with proper conversions of the recipes that take into account not just measurements -- but also different ingredients, oven temperatures, and even give suggestions for hard-to-find ingredients. Also, since many of our recipes have been converted from recipes originally from UK chefs, we would love to have the proper original recipe -- so that we weren't converting back from a conversion. That said, I can really see how useful what you suggest would be in the meantime -- so we'll work on it. We are an indie company and can only do a few new initiatives at a time -- so I hope you'll stick with us in the meantime. Oh, and about 1/8 of the recipes already have both metric and imperial -- including all the recipes by Victoria Blashford-Snell and Brigette Hafner.
    Thanks!
    Will,
