How to bake a universe

Tuesday, 19 March, 2013 - 19:00 to 20:00

Tired of baking the same old cakes ? Why not try this lovely dish which will expand to fill you up while containing precisely zero calories. The Higgs field gives this dish comforting solidity with slightly spicy overtones of heavier elements coming from a liberal scattering of supernova explosions, all bathed in a microwave coulis. You will require in your kitchen some form of time symmetry violation to make sure there is some matter left over after the anti-matter has been absorbed during the baking phase. This isn’t the easiest dish to cook but with the assistance of Dr Malcolm Fairbairn, your dark energy will rise properly, without losing the grittiness of your galactic structure.
