Carbecue chef cooks haute cuisine on his Ford Ka's hood


Cape Town - Unique car-cooker chef, Alfred Cary, has recently released his first controversial cookbook called Carbecue in which he shares his best recipes for cooking grand meals on the popped hood of his small silver Ford Ka. 

Cary, a 22 year-old student from Henley-on-Thames, first started cooking meals close to the engine of this car to avoid having to stop at service stations on his journeys home from Edinburgh, reports Daily Mail. Cary wanted to avoid the expensive and unhealthy foods found in convenience stops on his way, and started making innovative plans to make his 'kospakkies' cheap and nutritional. 

Cary makes his gourmet meals by placing prepped foods wrapped in tinfoil close to, or on top of his Ka's engine. The food then cooks while Cary is behind the wheel and when he pops the hood at a pitstop, dinner is served.

His book, Carbecue, gives instructions for prepping the raw products before placing them in the engine. It then also gives a 'cooking' time by telling you how far you should drive for your meal to be cooked to perfection. 

If you're already a driver of long distances, this might be a perfect solution to your road to health. However, this method of cooking can also eat away at your fuel-allowance if you now have to drive around town in order for dinner to cook.
