Florence Lin's Complete Book of Chinese Noodles

Father Kitchen | Dec 8, 2008 05:00 PM

A friend is pushing me in the direction of noodle making--he's drawn to Italian pasta and I am drawn to Chinese noodles. I was lucky enough to find a copy of Florence Lin's classic. Measurements are given in cups. But, as we all know, a cup of flour can mean anything from about 3 ounces to over 5, depending on how the cup is filled. Does anyone know how she measures? Scoop and scrape? Sifted? Spooned into the cup? Thanks for any information you may have.
