Solar Cooking Comes to Food Channel!

Solar Cooking Comes to Food Channel!

Hey! Check out this recap of  the  It Ain't Easy Being Green Episode 5 for the new series, Private Chefs of Beverly Hills. There's a segment for one set of chefs that requires solar cooking! It would be one of the few days when there's very little sun in Beverly Hills but, in spite of the chef's doubts about the food being cooked, it turns out perfect...Chef Manouschka Guerrier prepared Meyer Lemon Olive Oil Rosemary Muffins with Candied Pansies. Get the recipe here.

Do you know what that means, in the larger picture? It means that little by little solar cooking is being introduced into the mainstream as a viable method of preparing foods. Granted, the family they were preparing food for was completely off the grid and the chef really didn't understand how to use the oven -- but, that's not the point. She held the door open the whole time she was talking to the other chef saying there was no heat inside the oven. Of course there wasn't, she was letting it escape by holding the door open. I think this is one instance when the homeowner could have explained exactly how to use the oven to avoid any problems. Nonetheless, the ovens were there for all the world to see. They had both a Global Sun Oven (which I'm currently using) and the Tulsi Hybrid, a solar oven that has back-up electrical capability. And, the food cooked was perfect. This is wonderful news.

  1. Great to hear!
    But honestly, did she really think it would get warm inside the oven if the door was open??!! Does she then usually have the door open to her "normal" oven too?? I mean, they do have to use their brains a little :-) :-) :-)

    I hope more and more people starts to use the solar ovens now, especially since they can save money in thses hard times.
    Have a great day now!
    Christer.

  3. I'm glad to hear it, it's about time mainstream tv got onto the solar cooking bandwagon, even if the chef was so silly as to open the door all the time.
