Big Ideas Come in Small Bites

Posted July 14, 2015 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Food designer ChloƩ Rutzerveld creates delicate, lattice-like, bite-sized shells stuffed with herbs and tiny mushrooms, the kind of appetizers you would have delivered to you on a silver tray at a fancy reception. But these little puffs aren't prepared by an expert caterer, they are 3D-printed from a dough made out of "edible soil" and seeds that germinate over several days into a tiny tidbit of contrasting flavors and textures. But Rutzerveld isn't interested in using technology to revolutionize dinner parties and soires, she has a loftier goal: to make "fully natural, healthy, and sustainable food... by combining aspects of nature, science, technology, and design."
