Food Futures will radically alter your ideas about consuming and producing food. Food designer Chloé Rutzerveld questions and explores new food production technologies and translates multidisciplinary research into future food scenarios. This book explains her thoughts, process and work, which is often described as provocative, cheeky and playful – inspiring and involving consumers in the discussion about potential food futures.
Follow the conceptualization of completely edible, “mini vegetable gardens’ with crispy plants and mushrooms, that become a full meal after being printed by a 3D printer. Engage in a quest for a new eating system in which we digest 100% of the nutrients we take in (instead of the current 75%) by breeding bacteria that are harvested into capsules (that also look, taste ánd smell good). Or start cooking yourself with the recipe for a healthy, typically Dutch “stroopwafel’ a recipe derived from her project STROOOP! in which she dives into the natural sweetness of root vegetables.
Start exploring, cooking and fantasizing about what we are going to eat in the future.
