    Always wanted to experiment with car cooking!! having seen cooking on all sorts of strange places like steam engines, steam ships/submarines i thought id have a go.

    heres some Carlic bread with cheese i prepared earlier:


    note you will need olive oil wiped all on the foil so bottom of bread wont burn and also so cheese when it melts wont stick to the foil!!

    All wrapped in foil and placed onto of one hot engine:

    Note how its above the exhaust manifold between head and turbo to get good heat!

    20 min drive and one rotation of the foil:

    erm be careful with any foods full of fat cos it will run out and drip on engine! I was thinking of doing bacon and sausage but decided the fat would work its way out the foil!

    remember over exhaust manifold otherwise the general temps in engine bays is only just under 100 celsius so you need it over the exhaust manifold to get decent temp like a real oven!

    im thinking when i go on a camping trip to wales later in year, put a few baking potatoes in foil directly on the manifold! 2 hour drive should be nicely cooked on arrival!!

    Awesome! Though I have to ask (maybe I'm a little naive) but what is the dark yellow stuff on top of the cheese garlic or :s?

    i used 2 cheeses, mozzarella and mature chedder, hence the colour.

    and obviously make some garlic butter up to flavour the bread.
