Chefs& cooks undergo training, difficulties and challenges trying to make a perfect recipe. Measuring cups and spoons are one of the magical equipment in the kitchen, especially for baking!
You might be wondering, “Is it so important that I measure accurately when cooking? ”
It might not be so necessary to measure for cooking, except a recipe specifically calls for measurements! For natural cooking and because you are just starting, I will recommend you follow the spice mix measurement you find in our recipes (recipe cards and the eCopy recipes.).
Baking, however, is an entirely different kettle of fish! Precise measurement is the secret to perfect & delicious bakings! Baking is a science, you need to measure the very least of ingredients in order to get perfect results. Even the world best chefs measures when it comes to baking. You cannot afford to assume based on your own thinking, please. You cannot eyeball, every little gram or mills is important, you cannot add more or less!
When it comes to cooking, you may be allowed to do justice as preferred, especially when you are a seasoned cook! You will still need to measure your major ingredients, however, and might just need to eyeball other ingredients. For new cooks, I recommend strict following of measurements to get perfect delicious tastes.
Following the step by step instruction and measuring ingredient when you’re baking at home isn’t difficult. What makes it difficult is when you don’t have the required measuring instrument to measure accurately. Or when you don’t understand the conversation of your measuring equipment. When you get to understand measurements, you just might be able to use available tools in your kitchen to make perfect bakings. The recommendation, however, is to strictly get measuring cups and spoons.
