Pancake cooking success comes down to the pan

CHEF Jason Ford says there is a secret to ensure your pancakes never stick to the pan.

It has nothing to do with the pancake recipe.

"It's all got to do with the pan," Mr Ford.

"If it's one of the cheap pans, it will always stick."

Mr Ford was at Saturday's Taabinga Rotary Pancake Breakfast to show the finer art of how to cook and flip pancakes.

He showed off some of the more experimental pancakes that go beyond lemon juice or maple syrup.

"I like corn and chives and salsa myself," he said.

The breakfast had a serious side and was part of Taabinga Rotary Club's fundraiser for World Polio Day. Rotarian Natasha Lumley said Rotary groups the world over had worked towards the eradication of polio since 1985.

"At this point the only two countries with new cases of polio are Afghanistan and Pakistan," she said.

Although the disease is no longer a problem in the developed world, the current challenge is getting the vaccine to small and remote communities.

The first truly effective polio vaccine was developed in the US in the 1950s.
