traditionally shared and must therefore reach a wide audience and also be
easily translatable.>

I don't think recipes can be translated. Not because of the problem with different units of measure (which can be solved quite easily), but because the ingredients available in different countries differ widely. That can change the whole process or the proportion between the ingtredients, so we are not talking about translation anymore, rather the whole recipe should be tested.
