    That would be a hard one to find in a dictionary, 'cuil' is a shorthand abbreviation for 'cuillère' or 'spoon' and for 'cuillerée' or 'spoonful'. Context should show you which is meant.

    'cuillère à café' = coffee spoon = tsp

    'cuillère à thé' = teaspoon = tsp

    'cuillère à soupe' = soup spoon = tbs

    'une cuillerée [no qualifier]' (of cream, pesto or another gloopy substance) = a dollop

    Hope this helps

    I'm guessing it has to do with SPOON. Cuiller is a spoon.
