DS wants to look at pictures of pots and pans and talk about how hot they must be. The Ikea catalogue is fine, but there must be something more interesting out there.

In the Night Kitchen - Maurice Sendak. Not so many pots and pans but oven, mixers, blenders and a lovely dose of surrealism.

Little box set of Big Cook Little Cook recipes are quite popular with DS too.

Slight tangent: The Runaway Dinner by Alan Ahlberg - no pots and pans but plenty of athletic food. Every home should have one!!

Some of the Meg and Mog books have lots of interesting ingredients going into the cauldron and subsequent big bangs.

Yes, 'Maisy makes Gingerbread' is popular in our house.

And Dim sum for everyone.

oh, great, keep them coming. Should have mentioned, The Tiger Who Came to Tea is popular as the tiger rifles through the kitchen cupboards and eats from the pans on the stove
