We recently decided to try something different. Fed-up of road side cafes and McDonalds, we've experimented with using the heat from the engine of our Land Rover to cook food. And it's worked rather well! The video above shows 3 basic recipes for:

  • Fully loaded, Jalapeño Nachos
  • Hot Dogs with all the trimmings
  • Baked Bananas with mars bars

After preparing the food, and driving for roughly 1 hour, everything was cooked through and ready to eat! This is the answer for those who work from their Land Rover and in the dead of winter, would love a warm meal! Depending where you place the food, it can be a very gentle cooking process or full blown grill!

All you need is your ingredients, a Land Rover and some tin foil.

Why not take a look at our brand new enamel, Hue 166 cup, so you can have a decent cuppa with your grub!

Do be careful about placing food items in a hot engine bay, needless to say there are a number of hazards. Use common sense!
