It’s no secret that our unsustainable love of meat has left us in a bit of a pickle. While many have predicted the rise of the insect-centric meal as a protein fix, scientists have also been exploring the possibility of cultivating meat in vitro as a friendlier, more sustainable method.
Bistro in Vitro offers up more food for thought. Created by Dutch artist and philosopher, Koert Mensvoort, the virtual restaurant explores the possibilities this method of food production in a fine dining context. Through the website, guests can choose from a digital menu of unusual appetisers, main courses and desserts to build their ideal, lab-grown three-course meal. If the sound of the ‘Throat Tickler’ doesn’t take your fancy, perhaps a cultivated cube of your favourite celebrity’s flesh in a whisky glaze is more up your street.
Don’t expect Bistro in Vitro on Just Eat anytime soon, however. Once you’ve decided on your meaty treats, you could be waiting a few decades before they’re actually ready. While some of the menu options could be produced with today’s technology there’s still a long way to go in the exploration of stem cell grown meat.
