Startup Plans To Grow Artisanal Salami From Celeb DNA
BiteLabs plans to grow meat from tissue samples from famous stars.
Want to get close to your favorite celebrities? Well, how about having them – a part of them, rather – for dinner? A project called BiteLabs wants to make it happen for you.
According to its website, BiteLabs plans to grow meat from tissue samples taken from celebrities and use it to make artisanal charcuterie in the “tradition of Italian cured meats.”
BiteLabs's meat is a mix of celebrity and animal meat, grown in-house “through a proprietary culturing process, into curated salami blends.” The website even has quick rundown of celebrities who might make good salami – James Franco, Jennifer Lawrence, Kanye West, and Ellen DeGeneres.
