Step up to the printer and watch your food come to life at Food Ink pop-up restaurants worldwide.

The world’s first 3-D printed multicourse meal is hitting the road, thanks to touring pop-up restaurant Food Ink. Kicking off in London on July 25, this series of interactive dining experiences brings together a team of international chefs led by Joel Castanye and Mateu Blanch (of the world-renowned elBulli and La Boscana, respectively) to create the world’s most high-tech meal. The courses will be prepared by chefs and plated by machines from byFlow, the inventor of the world’s first portable multi-material 3-D printer.

Printed monkeys hold edible printed peanuts, one of nine courses at Food Ink pop-up experiences.

The food isn’t the only 3-D printed feature, however — the tables, chairs and lamps were designed and printed by Arthur Mamou-Mani, a protégé of the late British architect Zaha Hadid. Polish artist Iwona Lisiecka designed the 3-D printed utensils.
