I sympathise with the reviewers who couldn't make recipes work. IMPORTANT: THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN BY IRISH AUTHORS USING BRITISH/IRISH MEASURES.
As an expat Brit living in America for the last 12 years, the difference in sizes between American and UK/Irish measures has made MANY a nice recipe utterly bin-able. An English tablespoon is larger than an American tablespoon, for example, so the sweet pastry recipie will not hold together with only 2 American tablespoons of water, but it will if they're British. I actually keep a set of my old UK measures around, but for those without that luxury, here's some info - and it's worth Googling any questions, especially for baking where getting the chemistry right is a delicate balance.
1 pint US = 16.6 fl oz, BUT 1 pint UK is 20floz
To convert US pints to British pints - multiply by 0.83
1 cup is 1/2 a pint in both countries (so same conversion)
To convert US fluid ounces to British fluid ounces - multiply by 1.04 (such a small difference I don't bother unless it's a really large batch)
1 US tablespoon = 15ml, a UK tablespoon is 18ml (stores now sell 15ml tablespoons, but my old 18ml tablespoon works for recipes better. So again multiply the UK tablespoons by 0.83 to get to American)
1 UK teaspoon = 5ml
i.e 3 UK teaspoons to 1 UK tablespoon
British cookbooks usually measure dry ingredients by oz, and 1oz is 28 grams.
American to Brit oz is near enough the same as makes no difference.
Hope that helps.
