Printing Food

“An engineering lab and a culinary school have teamed up to construct novel edible objects with 3D printers that use pureed foods in place of ink.

Miniature space shuttles made of ground scallops and cheese are among the masterpieces that had already been made using 3D food printers designed by the computational synthesis laboratory at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y.

The lab is collaborating with the New York City-based French Culinary Institute to make new edible creations through a project called fab@home.

The printer precisely squirts out a paste made of pureed foods to create a 3D object, such as this stack of raw turkey around a cube of celery. (French Culinary Institute/Cornell University)”It lets you do complex geometries with food that you could never do by hand,” said Jeffrey Lipton, a researcher and graduate student at the lab.”
