Is a ‘negative microwave’ – a device that quickly cools food and drink – possible?

I’ve been grappling for decades about how you’d get a “negative
microwave” to work, a device that very quickly cools things such as food or drinks without having to pre-fill it with something that’s already cold. I understand many of the reasons why it’s near impossible but is it actually impossible? Maybe quantum physics can mysteriously do it. George Stewart
