When I was in fifth grade, conversions stumped me. There were so many places to misplace numbers, formulas to remember, and a thousand ways to add to 100 (if you were me, that is). And now it’s back. Cookbooks require conversions, and house style seems stuck on 1 cup of garfava flour = 120 g rather than telling me how much one cup of plain old all-purpose flour is. And it’s too late ask for a better style guide.
Lessons learned? Do your damn conversions (and let’s not even mention references) before the day it is due. Okay? Okay.
