For those interested in the practicalities of cooking without a kitchen, Christine Dann shared this video from Massey University (University of New Zealand) on How to Cook a Hangi (a traditional Maori feast). This is special occasion cooking. Just the cooking process takes about five hours. They have constructed the holes, gathered all the fuel and other materials, and completely prepared all the meat before cooking. Most of the materials used in this video — from the fancy wire racks and cabbage leaves to the shovels and lighters — of course would not have been available to Paleo folks. So dial up the work load accordingly in your mind. Then note that this is a feast, producing quite a quantity of food — and yet, this still falls well short of the volume of work involved and food produced in hunting a mammoth.
Thank you, Christine, for sharing this!
