Local produce meets technical process at the Internet giant's Mountain View headquarters.

If experimenting with technology for a living wasn’t enough, Googlers can now experiment with it over lunch as well. Employees at the Mountain View headquarters now enjoy 3D printed food thanks to Exhibition Chef Bernard Faucher. Using a 3D printer, Faucher controls temperature and time during the printing process to create customized food options. Putting pasta dough and vegetables into it lets him produce food with “a very distinct and customisable shape.” Perhaps Google’s next experiment will be with Modern Meadow, a startup funded by Paypal’s Peter Thiel that uses 3D printers to bioprint meats.

Dining experiences are becoming more and more personalized and 3D printing can only further that trend. A write-up on Cooking Issues finds chefs playing with MIT’s Fab@Home 3D printer to create pasta creations of their own using masa flour:

Imagine if instead of restaurants branding their decor or their locally-sourced, organic recipes they branded the ingredients? The shape, the texture, the process – all of these doors lie open to us now with the rise of 3D printed food products.
