CULINARY INFO - key to recipe abbreviations

ml - millilitres
lt - litre
gm - gram
kg - kilo
tsp - teaspoon
tbs - tablespoon
pc - piece
sq - sufficient quantities


the abbreviation ''pc'' can be initially confusing, it refers to when a whole or part of something is required. For example 

  • if 2 eggs are needed it will be written as                                     - eggs       2   pc
  • if half an onion is needed it will be written as                              - onion   1/2   pc 


the abbreviation ''sq'' is used when an item should be added or used to taste
