Um... So have we. I made one myself just the other day. Then a couple of days later I wrapped a turkey steak in bacon. Good bacon, that is, not American bacon. If you Yanks ever come to the old country (I hereby claim that nickname for Britain!) try our bacon, and it will blow your mind. Because it's actually made of meat, instead of that burnt-through fat-filled crispy pigshit you call bacon.
I use imperial measurements for more or less everything. Height, weight, distance, cooking, whatever. But I use metric at work because otherwise the stuff we ship abroad just gets everyone confused. By the way, a little history for y'all: the reason America and Britain use imperial measurements (named after the Roman empire, FYI) is because the metric system was implemented by Napoleon while he was conquering Europe. But as he never made it to Britain or America, we never adopted the new measurements. He also wanted to bring in metric time. That would have been weird.
I hope I am a good enough writer that some day dwarves kill me and drink my blood for wisdom.
