article imageVideo: Researchers use molten metal to grill a meal

By Walter McDaniel     Jul 15, 2014 in Food
Syracuse - Culinary researchers at Bompas & Parr performed an experiment with a makeshift grill which used a superheated stream to cook a steak with some corn. The results were mixed but it made for an impressive video.
The team combined an old bronze furnace which could deposit molten metal with dry ice to contain the mixture. As you can see in the video the food was more or less ignited by the intense heat. It may not have been great for human consumption but it left many Vimeo viewers impressed.
Both grilling and cooking with hot rocks are both things that the Bompas and Parr team studies. Preparing food using hot rocks is something our ancestors did in many cultures. They took on different forms but used the same concepts we still use today.
Chefs and even customers working with volcanic stones in restaurants has been on the rise recently. This is an unconventional cooking method in the modern day but has a novelty which draws hungry people in. The links also show that the trend is catching on from Australia to the United States.
This is neither the first strange food experiment that the team has conducted nor will it be the last. Their previous efforts include drawing lightning to a steak which was cooked almost instantly and creating a glowing jelly funeral event.
