Wow, that is WAY too much work.
Try this. Take an apple box from the grocery store, set the top aside, cut one end out of the base. Line the whole inside with aluminum foil. Then crease the sides a couple times, from near the bottom on the remaining lower end, up toward the top of the cutout end. If you look at it from the side, the remaining end makes a vertical line, the bottom is horizontal, and the two creases should be less than half and more than half of the difference. All together, it's a fan shape. Then bend outward at the creases, so that the box forms a funnel.
Aim the thing at the sun. Put a pot in the closed end. I've cooked meals this way in Seattle, believe it or not. And if it works here, it works anywhere.

I HAVE ALREADY TRIED THE SOLAR FUNNEL COOKING. I DID IT AS MY MASTER DEGREE PROJECT AND IT IS WORKING VERY WELL.
