This is a voyage of Chefs Ink
To explore the strange new world of 3D food printing
To seek out a new way of preparing food
To boldly go where no other chef has gone before...
3D printed food could enable us to reinvent our culinary ways on many levels, from texture to shape and artistic vision.
The new technology also offers many possibilities to make the consumption of products like meat more sustainable and space travel more comfortable by introducing new ways of preparing a meal in space. The space race has just begun between billionaires Elon Musk (SpaceX) Jeff Bezos (Blue Origin) and Richard Branson (Virgin). 3D food printing will play an important part to supply space travelers with food. During the trip to Mars and for colonizing the second home for humanity.
But here on earth started Chef Michael with Chefs Ink a new chapter for custom food printing. Chef Michael and his team provide a new kind of service for the food industry. With pasta, chocolate, cookie, potato or vegetable puree, cream cheese, marzipan, humus… and more offer Chefs Ink a huge variety of unique shapes they are developed, produced, and get delivered to your business.
What even is 3D printing food and what purpose has it in the food industry?
It is very simple and complex at the same time, it is all about customization, branding, personalization, creativity, efficiency, and perfection. All these characteristics we are looking for in gastronomy when it comes to food products. To develop a final product takes time and if there‘s one thing chefs don’t have, it’s the time! Also, investing a couple of thousand dollars is a risk, not every food business is willing to do right now. That is why Chefs Ink steps in and takes all these concerns off your shoulder, so chefs can stay focus on their day-to-day business or upcoming events. 3D printing is just perfect when it comes to events.
For example. When you need 100 Chefs Ink Nautilus pasta shape you will get 100 pieces of this product in the size, flavor, or color you want. You need this dish as a first course it can be ordered small or you need it as a main course you get it bigger and in the perfect size that suits your plate and your design of the dish.
When you have a corporate event with a sponsor and show appreciation for the sponsor, you can create an edible logo in marzipan for a dessert or in butter on top of a sizzling steak.
Or you want to brand your business. Get your business logo printed in chocolate and decorate your dessert, ice milkshake, or cocktail with that. Your customer will make pictures of your dish and posted in social media, and he creates advertising for you even without your hashtag.
These are just a few things where Chefs Ink can help.
