Here’s the simple Cooking Equivalent Measurements Table I relied on when starting out. As you get going on becoming a gourmet cook, refer to it often, as proper measurements are critically important. However, as you become more and more familiar with the effects of herbs and spices and so forth, you will need to rely less and less upon it except, of course, when you are baking and then you need to have a good scale handy to accurately measure all of your ingredients.

About Chef Kathy

My name is Kathy Davault. I am an award winning chef and author, and have enjoyed cooking for over 30 years. I decided to go to culinary school to become a chef because I knew there was more to cooking than just following recipes.

I started my website http://www.how-to-cook-gourmet.com in 2006 to offer an abundance of information on many of the things I learned in culinary school. I have a real passion for cooking and want to share all of my tips and techniques with you.

If you are serious about cooking, and would like to be considered a real chef without going to culinary school, let me show you how. You will truly leave a lasting impression on your family and friends, and become the talk of the party with your fabulous dishes!

Sincerely,

Chef Kathy
