Thanks for stopping by.    Would you agree that all too often in today’s world, speed is considered an end in itself?  We have fast food, instant coffee, and frozen food aisles stretching around the world.  By cutting down preparation time, we reason, we free up time for other demands in life.   Yet this apparent bargain carries a high cost in the long term. We find ourselves living with high blood pressure and high stress, consuming food without taking the time to enjoy it.

It’s time to remind ourselves that our consumption is bound by the limits of the Earth—and how better to do so than solar cooking?  I bet you may not have even heard of solar cooking yet but bear with us because this is not JUST about solar cooking and it WILL give you great recipes you can use in any conventional cooking method too!

My wife Ruth and I are very excited about sharing with you our solar cooking adventures and recipes caringly gleaned by our team from over 15 years of evangelizing clean, sustainable, environmental and user friendly technologies in Bolivia, but first let me ask . . . .
What if . . .

You could help prevent some of the 2 million deaths each year (of mostly women and children) attributed to what the World Health Organization calls the silent killer in the kitchen?

Did you know that the white or dark "smoke" which can be seen is really tiny particles of unburned material that when breathed in become impregnated in ones lungs effectively reducing the transfer of oxygen and toxic matter to and from the blood, resulting in death, lack of mental and physical development in babies,  and more? . . .

Imagine . .  .

Your child having to pull up shrubs or gather sticks on their way to and from school every day just so that they can have something to eat there or when they or their mom or dad come home from work.

Solar cooking is one of the cleanest, safest, most economical cooking methods we have . . .  but sadly too few are aware of it's existence, much less it's many benefits!

For me, it took years of living in a developing country before I learned to appreciate how this healthy, economical cooking method could revolutionize one of the most essential activities we all must experience on a daily basis  . . . food preparation.

What if...  Solar Energy really worked?
Thomas Edison betting on solar energy What if... you could actually harness the FREE power of the sun to cook a majority of your meals?

What if... you could use your solar cooker as a "crockPot" style thermal cooker when there was not sun to provide Free solar energy?

What if... solar cooking could provide more nutrients than your traditional way of cooking PLUS give you back 15 to 20 hours a week that used to be used to control the cooking process?

What if... it was so easy that even a child could do it without burning themselves?

Cooking with the sun is environmental and people friendly......

Solar cooking requires a different mindset. It demands some planning and patience, but you will find that these values yield much more satisfying results and lasting life changes than its faster and more wasteful alternatives.

You don´t have to stir or worry about your food burning in a solar cooker, so you have more time to sit back and relax while the sun does all the work.  But, as much as I am pro solar cooking, we built our recipes in such a way that they can be used in any cooking method.  I still personally encourage you to slow cook though, as that does help retain the nutrients and vitamins much as happens when you slow cook in a solar cooker.

So what makes me think I can tell you about solar cooking and  saving the world (helping the environment)? well....

I have been solar cooking since 1997 and if you could see my waistline you would know I enjoy eating about as much as I like to cook.

But more than a solar cook, I have dedicated years to finding and implementing  solutions.  It was in 2003, after having lived in Bolivia for over 15 years that, I was impacted with the urgent need of expanding alternative cooking technology to counteract serious health, environmental and economic issues born primarily by women and children that I cofounded the Center for Development with Solar Energy and currently am Executive Director.

Prior to forming CEDESOL, I led solar cooking uptake through the small social enterprise, Sobre la Roca: Energías Alternativas, where I and my wife Ruth (herself a Bolivian) developed a successful social methodology used even today by many local and international organizations.   Long ago I learned the importance of team work and I attribute our success to our talented and dedicated team of mostly women working with women.

In several progressive consulting and program development contracts with the German Technical Cooperation Agency and other organizations in Bolivia, we helped implement the use of thousands of ecological cookers. We demonstrated that local conditions are what dictate solar cooker style; matching technology with culture and participant preference has been one of our keys to successful uptake.

We are currently moving forward a Voluntary Emissions Reduction project listed in the Gold Standard involving 54,000 families and reducing 500,000 tonnes of carbon during 10 years.  I was nominated for the Global Leadership award in Kampala Uganda in 2009 at the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Forum and have participated as a speaker or trainer at conferences/workshops in Africa, Spain, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, USA, Paraguay, Peru and Bolivia.

Since 2004 I have worked with some fantastic and incredibly talented volunteers.  During our travels on the long back roads into the remote rural areas we work in, stories about our many adventures and some crazy things that have happened to us over the years often just kinda spilt out.  It was during some of those times that the idea and synergies for SolFood came about.... adventure stories are always good for the soul.

The word SOL in Spanish sounds just like SOUL in English but it means SUN...

We hope you agree that our play on words has indeed transitioned into Food for your Soul...

SolFood: Food for the Soul cooked, with the Sun:
is the answer you've been searching for.

Baking cakes while solar cooking

Solar ovens, using a free and renewable resource, allow for cooking that does not demand constant attention or fuel replenishment.    They help to empower women and children, who would otherwise be confined by the need to gather biomass fuel and tend to their cooking.

"You have done a splendid job of telling your story, explaining ecological cooking and providing your readers with a lot of awesome recipes"

Dear Ruth and David,

I just finished reading your cookbook and my mouth is watering. You have done a splendid job of telling your story, explaining ecological cooking and providing your readers with a lot of awesome recipes (I'm trying to cut down on meat, so I really loved all your vegetarian recipes).   Congratulations on a really great publication.  I'm going to use some of these recipes in my field demo.

All the best,

"I love your cookbook and enjoyed it so much.. It may be the best one out there..."

Hola David and Ruth,
I love your cookbook and enjoyed it so much.. It may be the best one out there...on the market for the world to read. I presume you have a Spanish version too, which will be so useful and inspiring in countries with that language and decent sunshine. 

The quotes from all the famous people really caught my attention, but they also set a valuable tone to the book. some of them are very inspirational. and many of the recipes sound mouth watering! I looked up the mainstreamsolarcooking site and was impressed by that too. I hadn’t heard of it before. I am sure there is a lot more I will glean from the book in the future and will make sure it gets top billing on the Kyoto Twist website..

All the best,

Jack  Anderson & Mary Ann Lammersen

David and Ruth,

Touching ending! You have told your story clearly and affectingly. It describes the enormous investment which must be made to transfer our technologies successfully. I will urge all to read it who express interest in doing the job properly. Thank you.

Chris Pell. I'm glad you mentioned Chris as well as the difficulty of arranging credible evaluations. In my opinion, the work Chris did in Bolivia is the best we have ever been able to acquire. I cite it frequently.

Dear David,
The adventures of a man and his wife in bringing some sunshine into the suffering lives of the most needy people in Bolivia whose only abundant resource is fresh air and sunlight.

Amidst the challenge of providing sufficient daily survival household energy while not causing further devastating deforestation, David looked up and precisely, the solution is from above: the Sun, and the rest, is history as recorded in this book.
