We thought London had every kind of quirky cuisine or obscure food pop-up covered, but this is the first time we’ve heard of dinners been printed onto the plates.
The dishes at Food Ink’s ‘multi-sensory food experience’ are created using a 3D-printer, and produced live in front of the diners’ eyes. Joel Castanye and Mateu Blanch are the chefs behind the nine-course extravaganza, which will be eaten using 3D-printed utensils designed by artist Iwona Lisiecka on 3D-printed chairs designed by Arthur Mamou-Mani.
The dinner is only open to ten lucky guests per night and it’ll set you back a hefty £250 to be on the guest list. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am and we reckon they’ll be snapped up pretty swiftly. If you’re not willing to part with that much cash, Food Ink will also be hosting two public open days where visitors can sample 3D-printed snacks and have a go on the printers and pens themselves.
Food Ink will be at 8 Dray Walk, E1 6NJ. Mon Jul 25-Wed Jul 27. 7.30pm–10pm (VIP diners); Tue Jul 26–Wed Jul 27. 2pm–6pm (public). Book tickets for the dinner here.
