Cooking with the Sun: Making and Using Solar Ovens
This class will be an introduction to solar cookers and food preparation with solar energy. There will be a lecture/discussion about the theory and practice of solar heating devices, how to build them, where to obtain specialty materials, and how to use them. Several devices will be on display, including a solar box oven, a parabolic cooker, a food dehydrator, perhaps more. We’ll learn how to construct them and, weather permitting, we’ll watch them in action. We’ll discuss some of the successes and failures in using them and sample some foods cooked on site in the oven. Instructor: David Glaser.
Location: Berkeley, Curtis near Dwight.
