With hindsight it is a dessert spoon I use for the honey and olive oil, not a tablespoon...  redface:

I have informed the kitchen staff and it has been decided decreed that the matter will be put on hold pending further and better particulars.

Wise choice. I was going to give it a whirl at the weekend but think I may fall back on the quick soda bread for the weekend instead.

And how big is a desertspoon exactly?

And he didn't say heaped or level spoonsful either ~ too much guesswork involved here. Sounds much more like my sort of recipe. "take one metric handful of flour and a splosh of wine etc"

How do you heap a spoonful of honey or olive oil!  point:

Not forgetting the terminally inept ~ we mustn't be elitist ~ inclusivity is the watchword of the week ~ ask Miss D, she'll know all about it.
