Riding high on the wave of new food 3D printers such as the chocolate, vanilla sugar, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon flavoured output of the Chefjet Pro by 3D Systems that will launch later this year, the Michelin-starred Barcelona restaurant Dos Cielos has announced that its chefs are experimenting with some 3D printed fine cuisine.
Twin team Javier and Sergio Torres are turning to new food tech in the form of Natural Machines’ food 3D printer — The Foodini. More will surely follow but these pioneers are the first with the unique capacity of 3D printers to create extraordinary and refined shapes to complement their restaurant’s panoramic skyscraper views and ‘full sensory experience’ ethos.
The duo are using the 3D printer as an intricate artistic food preparation device, rather than 3D printing whole dishes in one. According to the pair, they are thankful that their hands won’t become obsolete, as the machine can’t make food taste good; it doesn’t cook it for you. What it does is help with the visuals and helps to create shapes that wouldn’t have been possible before. The twin team has already ordered a [3D printer] as they have so many ideas to try out. We here at 3DPI.tv can’t wait to see the results!
