“It is well known that solar kitchens use alternative energy: the sun. Yet it is not so widely known how the technical parameters of the solar kitchen affect food processing when cooking. Heat is all over the food, and is not only below as in the traditional way of cooking. The time sequence is much more progressive, changing continuously. These two facts affect the taste and texture of prepared food in a surprising and positive way, bringing about a completely different tasting experience. The Lapin Kulta Solar Kitchen Restaurant also plays with several contemporary factors; it is a nature-driven kitchen featuring flexibility and immediacy.”
” The frameset HTML tag was introduced in 1996 with version 2.0 of Netscape browser. This tag made it possible to divide a browser window into parts and show several HTML documents at once.
A lot has been written about this most controversial tag in the history of markup languages. Already in the year it was created, usability experts announced that it breaks fundamental rules of hypertext and navigation. It was hated in the end of the 1990’s and neglected in the new millennium. In March 2011 W3C finally removed frames from the HTML5 standard.
