Cooking with the sun shows how to harness the sun's energy in planning meals. It presents in depth plans, liberally illiustrated with line drawings and photographs, for building photo voltaic ovens that can cook a 12 pound turkey in three hrs, and a photo voltaic reflector "scorching plate" that perks espresso and cooks steak, bacon and eggs, scorching cakes and other stove-best meals. The oven will reach temperatures of 375 degrees F, and the "scorching plate" 650 degrees F.

Cooking With the Sun provides simple instructions for each, together with a host of recipes -- pizza, chicken, pecan pie -- that will persuade you that very low-tech is the way to go.
