Cooking with the Power of the Sun

Instructor: Jim Phillips (view profile)
Guest: Paul Munsen

People have used the sun to cook for centuries. It is the most inexhaustible of all known energy sources and it is free!  Bake, boil or steam any kind of food with the power of the sun, no fuel needed. Totally safe – no danger of fire – never burn dinner again!  Cooking in a SUN OVEN® is easy, fun, natural, and nutritious.  Use it every day in your backyard, at picnics, while camping, or in the event of a power failure.  It can even help keep your house cool in the summer by keeping the heat from cooking outside, reducing air conditioning costs.

Paul makes no apologies about his fanaticism when it comes to SUN OVENS®.  He says: “The most fulfilling part of my job is to introduce people to the pleasures of cooking with a SUN OVEN®.  I wish we could meet in person so I could share my passion and enthusiasm about SUN OVEN® cooking with you and see your face the first time you sample your favorite foods after they have been embellished in the sun.”

Instructor: Jim Phillips
Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years. For a number of years prior to this career, his hobby was teaching cold weather safety & survival.

Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliance living and family preparedness. He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question “What if?” and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work.

The answers he seeks (and then teaches) must be based on true principles derived from first hand experience. Above all else, he believes that attitude and practical knowledge is more critical to survival than having a bunch of “stuff.”
