    Per our website:

    A tokamak fills a gymnasium-sized room and costs several hundred million dollars to build. Tokamaks and most other fusion devices use powerful magnets to attempt to stabilize the plasma (extremely hot, electrically conducting gas in which the fusion reactions occur). This task has been compared to “lifting gelatin with rubber bands.”

    Does that sound like a good food demonstration event or what?

    All kinds of gelatin/jelly desserts suggest themselves.

    And tokamak jello molds : )

    Chefs out there, get some jello and make some interesting plasma confinement concoctions. And send us pictures!

    This will be fun to do with kids.


    A bundt cake pan should make a great mold!

    You’d better let it get pretty stiff if you’re going to lift it with rubber bands! 😆


    Further to your Rezwan’s “tokamak pork” comment, a pork meatloaf cooked in the ring mould would be great ; if you also want to stick with the gelatin theme… how about sűlt? It’s basically pig trotter and hock jelly, an Estonian dish. I saw it on one of our British cooking shows, the “Hairy Bikers”

    Hmmph, the directions are quite complex. And it would seem that “sult” is a generic term for jellied meat….

    Here’s a version with veal… http://www.foodgeeks.com/recipes/20196
    And with pork ; http://www.inyourpocket.com/estonia/tallinn/Estonian-cuisine-55202f?more=1
