The recession got you cooking more than usual but you're not great at sizing up portions? The Portions Calculator measures perfect portions for unfamiliar and familiar foods, like pasta, that are notoriously difficult to portion correctly. There's not much you need to know beyond that. Just pick the type of food you'd like to measure, select how many adults and children you're cooking for, and let the Portion Calculator tell you how much you should make. I've always found it really difficult to get the portions right when cooking for two, but this seems like the perfect compliment for home cookers looking to put together a meal for any sized crowd. Got your own tricks and shortcuts for getting the portions right? Let's hear 'em in the comments.
