Crowdfunding an in vitro meat cookbook
Eindhoven’s Next Nature Lab is running an IndiegOgO fundraiser for a “Meat the Future Cookbook” — a piece of design fiction setting out recipes we might be able to prepare when in vitro meat-growth is the norm. There’s meat grown from your own flesh, cultured in a medallion you wear around your neck while it matures; rainbow meatballs, meat that you knit, meat-paint that kids use to paint edible pictures, meat cultured from samples of extinct dodos and dinos, and transparent meat “sushi.”
There’s four days left, and &eur;25 gets you a copy of the cookbook. Next Nature produces some gorgeous books on these lines, so it’s a good bet that Meat the Future will be a lovely little piece.
