French & American Measuring Spoons

Posted on Saturday, June 9, 2012 in Food, French

My mom sent me a recipe for homemade tortilla chips in French today, I suppose to help me practice my reading comprehension. And that is fun! But there was one thing I couldn’t quite understand in the recipe. The recipe measures things in “cuillères à soupe” and “cuillères à café”. I was a bit befuddled over that. Spoons for soup and spoons for coffee? What? So I researched and this artile about the differences (and ultimately similarities) of French & American measuring spoons. Turns out that cuillères à soupe is the equivalent of the American tablespoon and cuillères à café is the equivalent of the American teaspoon. Simple!
