    Default "Glug of Oilve Oil"?

    Would like your help if anyone tried cooking from Jamie Oliver's
    cookbook. There are several recipe in his cookbook (jamie at home)
    when he mentions using olive oil without the measurement, he keeps
    using the word "Glug of olive oil", what does this mean? How much oil
    should I use?

    example
    "Get a really large frying pan on the heat and add a glug of olive oil"

    Gotta love those obscure cooking terms A glug is pretty much two
    tablespoonfuls. Depends on the exact recipe, of course. Could be three
    tablespoonfuls depending on the amount of ingredients.

    Or the mouth size of the bottle!

    Americana cookery is inexact at times and uses terms like this when exact
    measuring isnt needed. A 'glug' is about when you would hear the bottle
    'glug' back at you when pouring fast. If you want to be pendantic, yes the
    size of the bottle matters ;-)

    Call it 2-3 TB when talking liquid oils.

    In my recipes, I also use 'squizzle' for Tiparos patis. You pinhole the top
    to make a squeezable bit and a squizzle is one squeeze. Amount about 1/4
    TS.

    It also depends on the size (surface area) of the pan.
    To me a glug means a thin layer of oil in the pan.

    It;s a glug, the way real cooks do it. No one who knows what they are
    doing measures oil to put in a frying pan.

    As much as appropriate for the pan.

    Just slosh a bit in. If it doesn't look like enough to cover the pan
    nicely, add a little more. It's not necessary to be absolutely
    accurate if it's just oil to cook in.

    And for the recipe. We're really just guessing since there's no clue as to
    what the recipe is.

    I guess, it's one of those times where the quality of the result really
    does not depend much on the amount of oil so silly quantities can be
    given.

    That requires the same mathematical formula one uses in determining
    how much to butter bread. According to pythagoras the parameters of
    oil glugs is soley dependant on the circumference of your waistline
    divided by the volume of your ass when you look in the mirror.

    It's odd, I measure most things but have never considered measuring oil for
    frying.

    No, now retired but trained as a scientist. I usually succesfully ignore
    most specifications of amounts of oil while using a non-stick pan. I
    don't deep fry.

    Take the top off the OO bottle. Place the pan/ receptacle on the
    worktop or stove in front of you.
    Manouevre the OO bottle to approximately above the receptacle and
    turn it to pouring position. As son as the oil hits the pan stop pouring
    and return
    the bottle to upright. That quantity is a glug, and if you were
    listening hard you may have heard the bottle say, "glug".
    How much oil escapes in the glug, depends on variables like how tall
    you are, what your other hand is doing, and the degree of interruption
    by phone, pets, family, etc.

    I knew it was something like that! Liberal arts and design folks tend to be
    "broad strokes" types.
