Solar cooking is cooking food with only the power of the sun! Learn about this simple and effective technology at the 2016 Bioneers Conference where One Earth Designs will be doing a live demonstration together with Solar Cookers International.
Come hear about the future of solar cooking in both developing nations and right here in the U.S. at this hands-on workshop right under the California sun. At the end of the workshop, interested participants can receive discount vouchers to purchase a solar cooker.
As a little preview, we’re excited to share this post from guest blogger Elis Bradshaw of One Earth Designs:
Solar cooking technology has come a long way from the homemade cardboard-box ovens of the 1970s. Despite having been in the public eye for decades, many people are still not familiar with the many ways that solar cookers can improve their lives (and reduce their carbon footprint). Solar cooking is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to adopt a solar lifestyle; you can buy a solar grill right online and be cooking within days. Despite most solar cookers’ compact size, the potential for energy savings is huge. Even cooking one or two meals a week using solar energy can result in tremendous energy savings. We can’t wait until Solar Sundays are as popular as Meatless Mondays!
Today’s solar cookers are professional-grade, durable, and easy to use. They are flexible enough to handle just about any cooking method you want, from baking to deep frying. SolSource works just as well for the chefs of Top Chef as it does purifying water for residents of the Himalaya and Haiti. Though our solar cooker generates enough power to reach 550F degrees, you’ll have no problem adjusting the heat to prepare delicate dishes like ratatouille and risotto, or to cook and water can a batch of homemade strawberry jam.
Solar cooking is no science fiction. Rather than tell you about the magic of solar cooking, let us show you! Please come by one of our demonstrations at #Bioneers16 and flip up a pancake for breakfast or a nice juicy (veggie) burger for lunch.
