How we test them
We use Standard Metric Measures.
All measures are level. 1 tablespoon = 20ml 1 teaspoon = 5ml
1 cup liquid = 250ml
We use 59-60g eggs. Oven temperatures are given for conventional ovens and reduced by 20°C for fan-forced (convection) cooking. However, as ovens vary by at least 10°C, check manufacturer’s handbook for recommendations. We also use an 800-watt microwave oven.
How we cost them
Costs per serve (in A$) as printed throughout the magazine are guides only. Prices were recorded at supermarkets and at suburban butchers and greengrocers as we went to press.
Costings for major food items are based on the best buys after comparing major or home brands. Costings for all ingredients and fresh produce, when in season, are only for the quantity needed for each recipe. All prices quoted for recipes are subject to GST and also price increases.
