Cooking with Your Car Engine


Next time you drive around town running errands, multitask by cooking dinner at the same time! In your car! Ben Carter cooked salmon en papillote by placing a salmon-filled parchment paper and foil pouch in a "cozy spot between the exhaust manifold's heat shield and the alternator." After 40 minutes, he was rewarded with a perfectly cooked salmon filet.

I'm not sure I'd want to try this with my car in fear of fish goo getting into places it shouldn't, but if I change my mind I'll have to pick up Manifold Destiny, a book dedicated to the art of cooking on your car engine.
