Lava and cooking aren’t normally associated together, but that could soon be changing.

British designer duo Bompas & Par are known for pushing the limits of gastronomy, having designed such one-of-a-kind gems such as the world’s first edible fireworks and jelly-based sculptures.

But their latest idea may their hottest and most ambitious – grilling meat over lava.

The pair flew to New York this summer to meet with to Robert Wysocki and Jeff Karson, two Syracuse University professors who know a thing or two about lava.

According to Yahoo! News, Wysocki and Karson have customized a 3 million BTU bronze furnace to melt basaltic rock. It takes roughly 60 hours to turn it into molten rock. The team has made this man-made lava more than 100 times, yet it has never been used to cook meat.

So how did it taste?

Bompas told reporter Kristin Hohenadel in an email that it was “the best I've ever had. It might be [something] to do with the theatre of molten rock harnessed for cookery!” He added: “The intense heat meant that the exterior was sealed in seconds. There was an excellent char, but the inside was done medium-rare in about a minute alone. We feasted like ogres!
