Presenting the funnel cooker

I am 58 years old, work as a self-employed web designer and my main target concerning solar cooking is to make it popular in Germany. The SOL KOCH Conference is one step in this direction. I want to inform people, that solar cooking works here in Germany and not only in Africa or India and that it is really fun. Presently, solar cooking is kind of a hobby for me, but my activities around this topic consume more and more time and it looks as if I am inventing a new profession for myself: solar cooking promoter or something like that. I am a member of Solarkochschule e.V..
