From today’s local rag:
Sunday morning – with no power and a case of cabin fever – presented the perfect moment to attempt manifold cookery. I’d heard stories about construction workers warming lunches on truck engines, but the idea had the flavor of an urban myth.
Not so, say the authors of “Manifold Destiny,” a chatty, how-to-cook-on-your-car-engine cookbook. Chris Maynard and Bill Scheller trace the idea of cooking with heat generated by propulsion back to the Huns, who tenderized meat by tucking it beneath their saddles.
Recipes at the link. Let me know if you try one, because I’m not planning to.
Aptonym: the food writer is named “Eaton.”
