Solar Cooking in Australia- the way it's meant to be!
It's obvious the Sun was designed for many purposes...solar cooking is just one of them! The amazing technique of Solar Cooking is starting to create a stir in the world of gourmet cooking...
Solar Cooking has been known and used for centuries in under-developed countries and environmentalists backyards. The use of devices that cook in the sun (Solar Cookers) has been limited until recently. Today however, with advances in research and design, Solar Cookers have become an easy to use and versatile method of cooking in any environment!
The benefits of cooking with the Sun can not be overemphasised.
* the food is better for you (cooked naturally without destroying vital nutrition),
* the food is more tender (cooked in it's own juices),
* is free (no fuel source needed),
* is better for the environment (no smoke or pollutants) and
* is more forgiving (food doesn't burn easily or need stirring as often).
With all these benefits you may be wondering why isn't everyone doing it?
Well there are a few problems. Firstly in cloudy weather the method can be limited. Secondly many poor designs of Solar Cookers (both home-made and commercial) have given the concept a bad name.
The main down-falls of some different designs of Solar Cookers are: too large & dangerous (especially parabolic mirror cookers), not enough heat produced (takes too long to cook food) and poor insulation (food gets cold too quickly).
