I don’t know if there’s anyone else in the United States who cooks over candles, as I do since I went off grid.

My recipes would work just as well over a gas or electric cooker. Cooker is English for stove, and is the word of choice in England. I lived in London for nine years, so a bit of the idiom has stuck.


I’ve been wanting to do a section of my Off Grid site on recipes, largely because that way I’ll be able to recreate something that turned out especially tasty.
