Note: The French cuiller à soupe is a "soup spoon", and the French cuiller à cafè is a "coffee spoon".
These are not used in French cuisine as precise measurements in the same way an Anglo-Saxon teaspoons or soupspoons are used for exact measures of things like yeast.
Spelling "spoon" in French cookbooks: cuillère, cuiller. The word cuillerèe is also used, but technically means "the contents of the spoon".
