Dinner cooked by an active volcano

At El Diablo, an iron grate sits over a circular basalt pit that funnels the earth’s natural heat to the surface.

A restaurant in the Canary Islands is taking barbequing to a whole new level.

Rather than relying on fire, electricity or natural gas, chefs at El Diablo heat their meat over a still-active volcano.

The one-of-a-kind grill is not spewing with lava (it hasn’t erupted since 1824); instead an iron grate sits over a circular basalt pit that funnels the earth’s

natural heat to the surface, where temperatures range between 400C and 600C.Nike NFL Jerseys Discount

The El Diablo chefs cook lamb, chicken and fish over the geothermal stove, for use in traditional Canarian dishes. Plan to eat early as the kitchen closes at 3:30 pm,

although a special Tuesday evening reservation can be booked in advance for 50 euros, which includes a tour, a three-course meal and transportation to and from local

hotels.Cheap NFL Jerseys

The volcano-powered kitchen was built by local architect César Manrique in 1970. Unable to lay the foundations due to the ground’s heat, he and fellow designers added

nine layers of basalt rock to serve as the restaurant’s base, leaving part of it open to the heat.

Today, the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic views of the park’s volcanic calderas, cones, craters and black lava fields. The landscape has

remained virtually unchanged since the last eruption, thanks to minimal rainfall and government protection.
