Here’s some real food for thought. The world’s first 3D-Printing restaurant will open its doors to an exclusive group of guests on three consecutive evenings (July 25, 26 and 27) at 8 Dray Walk in Shoreditch, an inner-city district in the historic East End of London in the United Kingdom. A limited number of tickets to the VIP Launch of Food Ink – The World’s First 3D-Printing Restaurant will be available Friday, July 15.

A scrumptious nine-course dinner will be fully 3D-printed live by an international team of chefs, artists and technologists. The landmark event will also showcase eating utensils and furniture that’s produced entirely through 3D Printing.

The three exciting evenings will also be live-streamed online, so even those unable to secure a seat at a table can still marvel at the tasty creations being “magically” 3D Printed right before their eyes!

This travelling 3D food adventure has been characterized and promoted as “where fine cuisine meets art, philosophy and tomorrow’s technologies.”

The 3D “Pop-Up Dinners” are scheduled to make stops in Berlin Dubai, Seoul, Rome, Tel Aviv, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, NYC, Taipei, Las Vegas, Sao Paolo, Tokyo, Austin, Singapore, Los Angeles, Cape Town, Sydney, Reykjavik – and yes, yes, yes, Toronto!

A team effort

Conceived and executed by a talented international team, Food Ink brings together architects, artists, chefs, designers, engineers, futurists, industrial experts, inventors and technologists.

“We’ve devoted our knowledge, expertise and creativity to ensure that this revolutionary vision becomes a present experience. As there’s nothing like the future, we’re investigating emerging technologies with passion and insatiable curiosity,” said the Food Ink team.

Food Ink’s founding partner and primary 3D Printer byFlow printed these eating utensils, cups vases and other dinner-table accessories using food-safe PLA plastic filament, ceramic, wood and other materials.

(Editor’s Note: I’ll do my very best to find out more about the planned Toronto event and post more news about it on this site. When it does come here, rest assured I’ll cover it for you – even if I have to…errrrr…force myself to eat every single sample. It’ll be a tough job, but someone’s got to do it).
