Gas Marks

Linzy and I went over to Dan's tonight to have dinner with him and Nikki. It was a great time, a good meal, and I even learned something: the Gas Mark cooking scale.

When we were talking about how to roast the chicken, Nikki was saying that she normally just puts it in at "Gas Mark 6" for a few hours and it comes out perfect. Not being from England, none of the rest of us had any idea how to convert Gas Mark 6 into a Fahrenheit temperature.

Google came to the rescue, and Dan had found a translation scale. It turned out to be pretty easy, with each Gas Mark being a 25 degree increment from 275. Making Gas Mark 6 400 degrees.

The chicken came out perfect, and everyone learned something new. What more could you want?
