sun-cookerTHE seemingly endless Spanish sun has many benefits, and now budding chefs are learning to cook with it.

Sun cookers are used in Murcia and Almeria, two of Spain’s hottest regions.

Exhibitions in October showcased the outdoor ovens in Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada, with Andalucians learning how the giant bowl concentrates the sun’s ray on a saucepan.

Spanish environmental expert Manolo Vilchez has already introduced the cookers to Haiti.
