The Kenya eCookBook: Beans & Cereals Edition is the first of a series of eCookBooks designed to support Kenyan cooks in how to make more informed choices about the fuels and appliances that they use at home. It shows how energy relates to money & time so the cook and household can understand how to save both by using smarter cooking techniques, fuels and appliances. The focus is on electricity and the time/money that could be saved by switching from other fuels. Furthermore, the eCookbook highlights how households can save even more, by adopting energy-efficient cooking practices (e.g. soaking beans) and energy-efficient cooking appliances (e.g. an Electric Pressure Cooker or EPC).
