#FGFStory: Europe’s First Solar-powered Restaurant

In southern France, Le Présage is harvesting the sun’s energy for cuisine solaire. The restaurant uses solar ovens and a Scheffler mirror — a large, parabolic dish that reflects and concentrates the sun’s rays to heat a stove to 400 °C. The kitchen’s water is heated by the sun, too.


Le Présage’s current incarnation serves fine food from a shipping container to guests for the time being as the owners will start building a fixed location later this year. The permanent restaurant will include a biogas installation to turn the site’s own organic waste into gas, enabling chefs to cook on cloudy days and after sunset. Biogas residues can then be used to fertilize a garden that’s meant to supply a quarter of the restaurant’s vegetables. #FuturDélicieux
