At least, a recipe ought to contain the accompanying snippets of data:

* the name of the dish.
* a rundown of fixings with the specific amount of every fixing.
* a portrayal of how the dish ought to be arranged and finished, this is known as the technique.

  1. Different measuring systems - as examples, while the US often uses cups for flour and butter, the UK will use either imperial ounces and pounds or metric. The same goes for Canada, while, as far as I know, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa are completely metric.
  2. Certain per-prepared products are not sold in some markets or equivalents have different names. For instance British digestive biscuits do not have a direct equivalent in the US but Graham Crackers are similar.
  3. When describing oven temperatures, the US uses Fahrenheit, the UK uses Celsius or Gas Mark and other countries use Celsius. Remember to include temperatures both for conventional ovens and fan ovens.
  4. If you’re addressing an international audience, be careful about slang and colloquialisms because they may not be understood outside your country and in some instances outside your region of your country.
  5. Remember that some foods have different names in different countries. For instance, biscuits in the UK are cookies in the US, while biscuits in the US are roughly equivalent to scones.
  6. Some foods are totally unknown in other countries, so you may need to explain what they are, even down to whether they’re sweet or savoury.
include in a recipe:

  1. Recipe title
  2. A short description of the dish and how it’s served

  4. Oven temperature, if required
  5. Number of servings or number of individual items made by the recipe
  6. List of ingredients
  7. Preparation instructions
  8. Whether the food is eaten hot, cold or both and whether it can be frozen, reheated or stored for long periods.
