The 3D printing craze has now made it to our plates. The Foodini is the first 3D food printer from Natural Machines that allows the user to fill a cylinder with a desired ingredient, such as potato, pasta, chocolate or dough, and then print it in layers into a desired shape. The premise is both cool and strange as the machine would bring contemporary food presentation to gastronomical levels, essentially bringing possibilities once reserved for the molecular kitchens of El Bulli.

It will be interesting to see how 3D food printing is received, as more people are joining to the slow food movement or organic and hand made, can the two ends of the spectrum unite?
