I have a collection of solar cookbooks. I have two solar ovens of different varieties. I use the sun to cook our food. I was impressed with this book from the outset. Although not large at 120 pages, it contains directions for making two different types of solar cookers as well as source lists for solar cooking (societies, pre-made cookers, how to pasteurize water/milk), not to mention some very good recipes (the Chili Corn Bread And Banana Cake recipes are to die for). I highly recommend this book as both an informational resource as well a damned good little cookbook.

The cover of the book shows a nice photo of a recipe using meat and chicken. I felt very disappointed when I opened the book and found very few recipes using meats. I'm not a vegetarian and can't stand tofu so seeing most of the recipes in this book geared toward those who avoid meat made me wonder what kind of camping this author ever did. If I had known the contents of this book I wouldn't have bought it.

This book not only tells you how to cook foods along with some recipes, in the solar cooker, it has plans on how to build a solar cooker. If you're making an emergency kit - this should definitely be in there - after you read it!!!

This book includes instructions to make a couple of types of solar cookers. The commercial ones cook better, but these work OK for casseroles and such. I have also made bread. You need a very sunny day for that.

It's fun to experiment with these.

Needed a book to learn the ins and outs of solar cooking. Found enough in this book to get started with my new solar oven. Clear explanations with pictures. Includes directions for constructing your own solar oven.

I can't wait for more sunny weather to try out several of the recipes. These recipes are doable, that means you don't have to buy special ingredients. Use what you already have to cook with. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to solar cook.
