Product description

Product Description

Australia adopted metrication successfully, but not quite universally, between 1970 and 1988. In spite of its success with metrication, for reasons that are increasingly obscure, and increasingly irrelevant, Australia refused to adopt the standard metric tablespoon of 15 ml (three 5 ml teaspoons) and clung to an Australian tablespoon of 20 ml (four 5 ml teaspoons). This Australia-only tablespoon has become somewhat mythical except in cookbooks and blogs and among those who like to chat about non-essential things. What made Australia do this? Was it a fear that its baking would fail? Was it a crisis of national identity? Perhaps someone will write a PhD someday and enlighten us (1600 words).
