Cooking with the Sun

Great food, less energy and a cooler house!



About this Event




Did you ever try and fry an egg on the road? Well that experiment might not have worked, but the sun is hot. And it is hot enough to cook eggs (poached, scrambled or fried) as well as pasta, stews, soups and cakes. And it can dry things – fruit, veggies and even meat (homemade biltong)

Shani and Tim from Ecoburbia use solar ovens for much of their cooking, especially in summer. Come and see the gear they use, learn how make a simple
solar drier and solar oven, and enjoy the tastes of food cooked directly by the sun!
