crazy post: making electricity (literally) with lasagna

In What Einstein Told His Cook, Robert Wolke explains that it is theoretically possible to make a battery using lasagna.

Briefly, tomato sauce perfectly conducts electricity between its container (a stainless steel hotel pan) and aluminum foil wrapping.

Are there any genius electricians out there with the know-how to turn theory into reality?

Can I use food to make electricity?

Could I possibly power, say, an electric blender, with a tray of lasagna?
