Celebrate World Chocolate Day with a 3D Printed Dessert!

Today, July 7th, is World Chocolate Day, and I wasn’t prepared – I have no chocolate. That’s remedied easily enough, as there are several grocery and drug stores within a few miles of my office. However, that would involve leaving and driving to one of those stores, and as I’m currently hard at work, I […]

MIT Uses 3D Printing to Create Shape-Shifting Noodles

Is there anyone who isn’t fascinated and delighted by the many shapes of pasta? There may be some people who don’t get excited about pasta, yes, and I do apologize for raving about pasta shapes more than once. I know I’m not the only one, however, judging from the 3D printed pasta design contests out […]

WASP Takes on the Gluten-Free Challenge with a Celiac-Safe 3D Food Printer

I tend to be a bit suspicious of any food-related trend, no matter how many people adopt it. The gluten-free diet is one of those trends – I can’t imagine cutting out all of the foods I regularly eat that have gluten in them, and I have friends with celiac disease who say they’d give […]

Pasta Gets Smart! Barilla Launches Second 3D Design Contest for 3D Printable Pasta Shapes

Back in my day, wagon wheels and vague dinosaur shapes were considered the height of sophisticated pasta shapes. I never would have imagined three-dimensional roses and cratered moons, but that’s what technology does – makes things cooler. It does a lot of other things, too, of course, like save lives, but you can’t deny that […]

Would You Eat 3D Printed Cheese? Dutch Researchers Hope So

Like many people, I have a love/hate relationship with dairy. I’m a big fan of chocolate and most ice creams, but when it comes to milk itself, I really dislike the flavor. With a few exceptions, I’m pretty anti-cheese, too, which baffles some of my cheese fanatic friends to the point of outrage. In another example of […]

3D printed food: love it or hate it, it’s coming. While to date we’ve seen some impressive proofs of concept (who could forget the terribly fancy 3D printed, edible Versailles?) as well as some ideas that might fit the “slimy, yet satisfying” Lion King trope by suggesting unpalatable-seeming ingredients, a lot of the hype seems to […]

I’ve heard a lot about 3D printed food and I think it’s fascinating, but I’ve never gotten a chance to try it. So far, it’s been mostly relegated to specialty events and high-end restaurants, and it hasn’t quite reached the masses yet. Martin Furze would like to change that. The Suffolk, England-based caterer has been […]
