Renewables Cookout and Food Festival

Renewables Cookout and Food FestivalJuly

Making your first batch of “sun tea” just might have been your first experience with “renewables powered” food preparation. Harness the power of the sun to speed the extraction of tea flavor molecules, the story went. Whether this produces the best product is debatable; using the sun to prepare and cook food is time-honored genius territory.
With today’s concerns about black carbon, climate change, and reducing indoor air pollution among other challenges, new technologies and innovations in the “renewables” cooking space are heating up. And we want to see what’d Vermont’s got to add to the mix!
Join Generator and partners at Burlington Electric and Vermont Gas for our first ever “Renewables Cookout and Food Festival” in July!
Right now we’re looking for ingenious ways to sustainably power food preparation. Think bicycle-powered mixers to solar cookers, pyrolytic stoves to, well, sun tea! Got an ingenious technology to demonstrate? Please write to [email protected] and let us know.
And look for an announcement of the date in early June and we get our plans nailed down. In the meantime, check out this great Kickstarter campaign from our friends at SolSource in Boston: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/scotfrank/solsource-sport-cook-anywhere-under-the-sun
