*'''April 28-29, 2012: (Sorbas)''' Situated in a beautiful village in southern Spain, [[Sunseed]] is an English and Spanish Charity which aims to develop, demonstrate and communicate accessible, low-tech methods of living sustainably in semi-arid environments. They are offering a two-day course to learn how to build a simple, low-cost solar oven with inexpensive recycled materials. The course will take place in Cortijo El Saltador in Lucainena de las Torres, in Almeria Province. [http://www.sunseed.org.uk More information...]

*'''January 2013: Local electrical engineer promotes solar cooking in Galicia''' - [[Javier Diz]] used the celebration of Magosto to demonstrate roasting chestnuts with a [[parabolic solar cooker]]. A creative chef, he also made ''filoas'' and ''polbo'' to show the usefulness of solar cookers.

*'''November 2012:''' Solar cooking advocate [[Manolo Vilchez]] writes from Spain, that Washington, D.C. celebrity chef and Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves Culinary Ambassador [[José Andrés]] visited the country of his birth last August to be honored for his humanitarian and international culinary achievements. While in Spain, Andres demonstrated once again his commitment to solar cooking, which he discovered after a huge snowstorm in Washington, D.C. knocked out power and closed roads for several days in 2010, and Andres discovered that he could cook delicious food in the middle of winter with his parabolic solar cooker. "Cooking food with the solar energy is unsurpassed for the pleasure of using a clean, renewable source of energy,” said Andres, while showing his countrymen in Bullas, Murcia, how to cook with an [[alSol]] parabolic solar cooker. Andres was fresh from his recent trip to [[Haiti]], where he has trained eighty young people at a school in Fond Verrettes to use the alSol parabolic solar cookers he has brought to Haiti in cooperation with the Spanish NGO CESAL. His students are also learning about other clean cooking systems. The students recently experimented with making espresso using their parabolic solar cookers. Andres, founder of the [[World Central Kitchen]], is also interested in promoting [[solar food dehydration]]. He is currently investigating the use of this green energy technology to help Haitians dry fish. AlSol Tecnologias Solares designs, manufactures and distributes solar parabolic cookers and solar food dryers with the development support of [[Gehrlicher Solar Spain]].

*'''May 2012:''' The [[Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo]] (AECID) has provided 150 solar [[parabolic cooker]]s to the people of Ouffi Ait – a small, sunny village southeast of Marrakech in [[Morocco]]. The introduction of these solar cookers has reduced the amount of time girls must spend collecting firewood, giving them more time to attend school. Working with the Foreign Association XXI and ADMR from Morocco, AECI targeted women as protagonists of a cleaner, more equitable future in their Morocco Solar Cookers for Rural Families project.

350 cocinas alSol

Una imágen realizada durante el taller de cocina solar celebrado en el Parque de las Ciencias de Granada, una actividad singular dentro de la celebración de la X edición de Ciencia en Acción.

  • Septiembre 25-27, 2009: Una imágen realizada durante el taller de cocina solar celebrado en el Parque de las Ciencias de Granada, una actividad singular dentro de la celebración de la X edición de Ciencia en Acción. La campaña climática mundial del 350 se presentó a todos los asistentes al taller y gracias a ellos y sus habilidades, se ha conformado con 33 cocinas solares parabólicas AlSol 1.4 la imagen área del 350, ¡ no te pierdas pasar a la acción el próximo 24 de octubre ¡, conoce como en: La ciencia de 350. El número 350 es las partes por millón que muchos científicos consideran el límite máximo seguro de CO2 en la atmósfera. Se puede ver el álbum en total y los comentarios aquí.
  • Septiembre 22-24, 2007: FESTIVAL SOLAR: Fundació Terra organiza el Festival Solar 2007 en el marco de las fiestas de Barcelona, con una demostración de tecnologías solares aplicadas al procesado de alimentos (cocinas solares parabólicas, hornos SOUL ultra ligeros, catas solares, etc.) y otras actividades relacionadas con las energías renovables y la cultura ambiental.

Spanish students at solar cooking workshop
  • August 2006: Miguel Ángel Soria reports that he gave a workshop for students at a school in Castellolí, a small town in the province of Barcelona. He showed a solar cooking video, demonstrated solar cookers, and had the students build scale models. They experimented with the full-sized cooker to bake sweet pastries, though inclement weather postponed the baking. Contact: Miguel Ángel Soria
Umbrella cooker
  • March 2006: Marc Ayats made a parabolic solar cooker by purchasing an umbrella, covering the inside with ordinary aluminum foil and cutting off the handle (because the handle would be at the focal point of the reflector — where you must put your cooking pot). He used ordinary white adhesive to glue the reflective sheet to the umbrella’s cloth. He says it is a very simple cooker to make because umbrellas are normally parabolic in shape. He also says it is easy to move — it folds up like a regular umbrella. The pot is held in place with a wire frame used for holding flower pots. Contact: Marc Ayats Plana
