*'''April 2007:''' Longtime solar cooking advocate and trainer [[Wilfred Pimentel]], along with [[Ken Goyer]] and [[Cynthia Wee]], led a two-day [[Integrated Cooking Method|integrated cooking]] workshop in Pambak, Vanadzor last August. They taught three technologies: solar cookers, [[Rocket stove|fuel-efficient stoves]] and [[Heat-retention cooking|heat-retention cookers]]. With access to these complementary technologies, food can be cooked regardless of time of day and season, and with a maximum of overall fuel savings. The group demonstrated both panel-type and parabolic-type solar cookers, though the region’s altitude and climate limit the amount of solar cooking that can be done with simple solar cookers. Seventeen people from a number of Armenian villages attended the workshop, held at the Peace Corps training center. Each participant received a [[CooKit]] and educational literature. They plan to return to their villages and begin teaching others about integrated cooking. '''''Contact:''''' ''[[Wilfred Pimentel]]''
