    Brilliant again, David. Just the thing I need for my vegetarian friends.

    Once again, would it be too much trouble to keep things in ONE measuring system?

    The only measurement I know in this recipe is the tsp.

    Again, where is there more than one system? I see metric and teaspoons. And there are metric spoon measurements. So, you use a metric teaspoon – 5ml.

    Very roughly, 3 cm to an inch, so a 7 inch pie crust. Again very roughly, 250 g is 8 oz (actually more like 28 g to the ounce, but in something like this it is not crucial. Liquid measures are about 500 ml to a pint.

    couldn’t have put it better, YokohamaMama! Thanks! I’ll see about posting a conversion chart on the right under the bio…

    I have converted pretty much all of these recipes to American standard by googling the conversions and added the recipes to my collection. I have tried all but a few of the recipes you’ve put on here. Enjoyed them all. Can’t wait to try this one. Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies. But then, I’ve never met a veggie I didn’t like. :) Thanks for this strip.

    pastry case is pie crust? don’t you usually pour the cream out of a jug into a bowl? why arrange the asparagus if you’re going to tip it over; or are you spilling the creamy mixture? where did the flan come from?

    Picky, picky. I guess there is more to the conversion than just measurements, though. Flan in America, I think, is a kind of custard pudding with syrup, in Britain and other former colonies which still speak British English, it is more of an open pie. You tip liquid into a pie crust, over whatever is in the bottom.
