What's in the Pan, Man? by Pauline Stewart, Alex Ayliffe


What's in the Pan, Man? by Pauline Stewart, Alex Ayliffe

'Dan can cook, man' - The delicious smells from his bubbling pot drift along the beach and attract a huge crowd, all eager to help with this Caribbean 'cook-out'. Everyone has something to add to the recipe. A little onion, tomatoes, three fishes, garlic, lime, okra...soon the whole town wants to know: What's in the pan, man?! Tantalizing descriptions and an upbeat text immerse the reader in a world of colour, activity and celebration.


You can almost smell the ginger and lime in this feast of a book. A lovely bit of Caribbean sunshine for our chilly winter months Practical Parenting

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
