Watch: Man Roasts Marshmallows Over a Volcano
In a particularly daring example of “eating locally,” the video below show Simon Turner, a New Zealand resident who wanted to make sure that his trip to the Marcum Crater in Ambrym, Vanuatu was as memorable as possible.
According to the video description, Simon brought a spare tent peg with him on the 400 meter-deep descent towards the lava lake, where temperatures can reach approximately 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
Turner’s colleague Bradley Ambrose, who filmed this daring feat of snack-making, is reportedly a “seasoned volcano expert” who presumably knew how to make sure that Simon didn’t melt to death.
“It ended up being one of the most perfectly-cooked marshmallows I have ever tasted,” he later told Breaking News. "Perfect and crusty on the outside without being burned — it had just the right amount of a gooey center but without getting it all over your fingers.”
Watch the video below, and if you are inclined to go on your own volcano-cooking adventure after this, do bring your own expert along.
