Why heat up your kitchen by turning on the stove when it's hot outside?

"Cooking with fire is primal—even when the fire is 93 million miles away. This book will make you a practitioner of both ancient wisdom and avant-garde skill. Bon appetit!"

—Bill McKibben

Founder of 350.0rg and Third Act, and bestselling author of The End of Nature

   Why cook with sunshine?  

“The CooKit solved one issue for me this week: how to cook during

a heatwave without heating up the house. The last few days, I’ve

roasted vegetables and baked cakes in my backyard. Sure, each dish

took twice as long as usual, but they required no more attention

than adjusting the oven every so often to follow the sun.”

—Anne Ewbank in Gastro Obscura
