3D Printing

Callebaut’s 811 dark Belgium chocolate has been chosen to round off the dinner at Food Ink’s international tour.

Food Ink – which claims to be the world’s first 3D printing restaurant – kicked off its world tour this week at The Old Truman Brewery in London.

The restaurant partnered with Callebaut in search for high quality ingredients and offered the chocolate as part of the desert following a nine-course dinner.

Food Ink head chef, Joel Castanye, who prepared the evening meals said: “It is great to work with top ingredients from all over the world and for the chocolate we naturally looked to Belgium. Using Callebaut’s Finest Belgian Chocolate for our desserts was crucial to us and is an absolute dream to work with.”

Pascale Meulemeester, vice president of Global Gourmet at Callebaut, said: “It’s a great honour for us to be part of this event and participate in such a highly innovative project. This proves once again that Callebaut’s Finest Belgian Chocolate is the chocolate preferred by chefs worldwide.”

Everything in the restaurant is 3D printed, including the furniture and cutlery. The Food Ink tour will stop next at Berlin, and continue to Dubai, Seoul, Rome, Tel Aviv, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Toronto, NYC, Taipei, Las Vegas, Sao Paolo, Tokyo, Austin, Singapore, Los Angeles, Cape Town, Sydney, Reykjavik.
