Now, a 3D printed meal pops up! FOOD

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - HT City | Lifestyle -

Up for fill­ing your plate with some 3D printed food? We’re not kid­ding, guys! A new pop-up res­tau­rant is set to open in the Bri­tish cap­i­tal of Lon­don this sum­mer, which plans to serve food made by 3D print­ers.

Lon­don is some­thing of a spe­cial­ist in the pop-up res­tau­rant scene, with an in­creas­ingly crazy ar­ray of din­ing con­cepts spring­ing up all over the city. Re­cent pop­ups in­clude an owl café and a naked res­tau­rant. And if the wait­ing list for this na­tur­ist eatery is any­thing to go by, Lon­don’s pop-up busi­ness is def­i­nitely boom­ing. The lat­est con­cept of­fers an­other off­beat op­tion for cu­ri­ous food lovers.

At Food Ink, din­ers take their seats on 3D-printed chairs be­fore tuck­ing into a meal cre­ated by the same kind of ma­chines. The 3D print­ers, sup­plied by a Dutch firm, will make hummus, cho­co­late mousse and pizza dough. In fact, they can make any­thing that takes the form of a paste, which is then shaped and ac­com­pa­nied by reg­u­lar foods. The pop-up will serve nine cour­ses, con­cocted by a team of chefs, artists and tech­ni­cians at a res­tau­rant in Shored­itch, East Lon­don, set to open for just three days, July 25 to 27. The ex­pe­ri­ence will be very short-lived, but the event will also be livestreamed.

The res­tau­rant, which claims to be the first of its kind world­wide, started life in Venlo, in the Nether­lands, back in April. Rather than seek­ing gas­tro­nomic heights, the con­cept aims above all to give food fans a glimpse into the fu­ture of food and cook­ery. The pop-up’s founders will be tour­ing their con­cept through­out the world over the com­ing months.
