Centrifugal fridge

If you jump on a spaceship, fly very quickly, then come back to Earth, you will have aged less than everyone else stuck on Earth.

So if you built a centrifuge, put all your food in and whizzed the centrifuge around very quickly (i.e. a good proportion of the speed of light) then you have a fridge.

The food might be a bit squashed though.
