For the ultimate 3D printing experience, how about a nine course 3D printed dining extravaganza?!
Food Ink's culinary World Tour starts in London at the end of this month.
In April, a dutch team of 3D printing food inventors opened Food Ink, a pop up restaurant which served a 3D printed five course meal at the 3D Food Printing Conference in the Netherlands. They are now planning to take their 3D food printing machine on a World Tour with the next venue being London at the end of this month.
This time, however, they are taking things a step further, and will be serving a nine course meal in a restaurant complete with 3D printed tables and chairs at The Old Truman Brewery in East London.
Despite the fun and flamboyancy that surrounds 3D printed food, there is a more serious side to developing the technology, insists Nina Hoff, one of the founders of the project. There is much support for developing 3D printed foods for people who have difficulty chewing or swallowing food, and in particular the elderly.
The impressive array of venues that the team will be showcasing their culinary delights in, include Berlin, Dubai, Seoul, Rome, Las Vegas, Tokyo, Sydney and Reykjavik. The scale of this sales pitch and the drive for investment they are looking for, highlights growing expectations for the future for the 3D printed food industry.
