2B Wednesday, July 25, 2001 Bulletin, \ :~ ,~ ~ :.~ By Alicla Higbee Indian Valley Editor The annual Solar Cook-Off in Taylorsville Saturday, Ju- ly 14, featured an internation- al flavor, but it was not just the food. Live music and entertain- ing poetry kept the crowds laughing and dancing all day, between visits to booths that offered selections from all over the world. From a distance, the event looked like a kaleidoscope of constantly moving colors. Up close, it was all smiling people who were relaxing and having fun. Over in the cook-off area were a variety of aromas, in- cluding the comforting smell of chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven. Cookie baker and Bay Area resident Ineke Ligtenberg and her husband, Allart, were two of several solar demonstrators and vendors. Originally from Holland, the Ligtenbergs demonstrat- ed several kinds of solar cookers. The backpack model drew a lot of attention from passersby, and so did Allart's photo album. Allart's world travels find him teaching people about so- lar power in places such as Nepal, Mongolia, Peru and other places. His photos show him using the backpack cooker on Mount Everest, on a far away beach, in the snow and a vari- ety of other exotic settings. The compact model in- cludes a reflective sheet that can be rolled up into a small cylinder. When unrolled into the functional cone shape, the sheet sits on the ground with a jelly jar-covered metal can- ister in its center. A complete meal for one person fits in the canister. A meal made with rice takes about 20 minutes to cook.
