NOTE: We are learning that, contrary to what used to be a popular belief, a tablespoon is not necessarily a tablespoon when it comes to measuring ingredients. As we share recipes with people around the world we are fast realizing that it is necessary to specify the system of measurment used in these recipes.

For instance: British, Australian and sometimes Canadian recipes use the imperial pint which is 20 fluid ounces; American and sometimes Canadian recipes use the American pint of 16 fluid ounces. The Australian tablespoon is 20mL; the British tablespoon is 17.7mL; in most Canadian recipes the tablespoon is 15mL; the American tablespoon is actually 14.2mL.

All of this gets very confusing after a while and it will be a relief for all of us when recipes become standardized and we use weights when measuring ingredients much more than we do at present.

IRC Chats about Cooking and Sharing Recipes

Fareshare has an IRC chat on Starchat.net Wednesday and Saturday evenings
at 9:30 pm eastern (7:30 pm mountain).
Go to one of the servers for starchat.net and join #fareshare.
One of the servers for starchat.net is:
polaris.starchat.net, Port 6667

There are several other servers listed on http://www.starchat.net.
This is a moderated channel and there is usually a friendly and lively group on hand with lots of recipes being exchanged and interesting chit chat. If you need more information about getting started on IRC follow the link the the Fareshare Home Page above - there are lots of helpful hints there plus a link to a place where you can download two good IRC programs: mIRC or Pirch. If you want to download any of these IRC programs my ISP (Internet Connect - http://www.connect.ab.ca) is a mirror site for Tucows and is a safe place from which to do this.

A java-based entry to the chat is also available on the FareShare site.
