How to cause little tornadoes in your kitchen

A broccoli souflee overheated in the oven tonight.  When I took it out and opened it, steam columns from the food started rotating like little tornadoes, even counterclockwise.

This is a lesson in how real storms form.  Warm water evaporating,  rising, meeting cool air, leads to condensation and often rotation, and a drop of pressure within the column.
