With the progress of 3D printers in the manufacturing industry, a lot of people have been speculating when will they begin to be spotted on a bigger scale in the food industry? While 3D printer candy shops have already been created where you can manufacture your own customized gummies, however, a restaurant that is capable of printing your food has yet to be seen. Well, the wait is over as the world’s first 3D printing restaurant named as “Food Ink” is all set to be opened for 3 days at the end of July.
According to Arch Daily, a Dutch company known as ‘By Flow’, where food is made with hummus, chocolate, peas, dough, and cheese, has provided the 3D printers. In case you have observed, all these ingredients have the unique capability to be squeezed out through a nozzle and made into something edible. Food Ink’s food is quite artsy, even considered to be culinary sculptures, and the idea is generating a lot of hype.
After a successful opening in the Netherlands, this pop-up restaurant will open in London from July 25 to July 27. For now, the idea is functioning completely off of novelty and hype, working only as a pop-up restaurant for inquisitive customers. The real question is ‘what will it taste like?’ and this is the question that has always encircled 3D printed food.
As per Food Ink,
“At Food Ink we create edible art prepared by the finest chefs with fresh natural ingredients and 3D-printed live using the revolutionary By Flow Focus 3D-printer. Our international launch is in London this summer 2016 and we will be coming soon to a city near you.”
Food Ink told that the stools in the restaurant are also 3D printed in order to enhance the thrill of 3D printing. It is possible that this 3D printed restaurant is just a small glimpse into dining in the future. Several companies are already picturing a future where everyone has a personal 3D food printer in their homes cooking whatever the user would like.
