Through Digital Gastronomy, chefs connect their challenges and future innovations with the general public. This way, they can raise awareness of their approach and the possibilities for the future of cooking and bring them to fruition with entrepreneurs and prosumers.
‘A Tribute to Complexity’ will be a private event for 12 people in each of the chosen cities, in this case New York and Barcelona. The dinner guests are to be scientists, artists, entrepreneurs, athletes, chefs and philosophers selected by Reimagine Food, which is investing €150,000 in this project. After this historic event, the project will be exported to Asia and Russia.
The event will take place in a 125-m2 space, where the architecture, dinner service, cutlery and even the menu will be 3D printed. The menu can’t be revealed yet, but we know that the tasting menu will consist of 6 ‘printed’ dishes. According to Marius Robles, CEO of Reimagine Food, “two of the six courses served will not be designed by humans but by ‘machines’”, bringing us closer than ever to Cognitive Cooking.
We will be able to offer the same dish printed at 8 pm in Barcelona and 2 pm in New York. Wearable technology and artificial intelligence will be just some of the areas of study linked to the dining experience.
Over the coming days, two of the selected locations in New York and Barcelona will be disclosed.
Marius Robles says “we will experiment not only with food, but also with how we’ll observe and interact with food in the next two years. We’ll surely see combinations that have never been tried before, both in shape and taste. Also, it’s exciting to see the enormous potential of technology and how it can interact with guests in ways that have never seen before.”
At the same time, as we announced, REEM will also be present at the 3D SEED. There it will also interact with the dinner guests and explain the details of how the menu and dishes have been created, and then process the feedback received from each guest.
The presentation reaffirms Reimagine Food as the brand bringing meaning to disruptive technology, such as drones, artificial intelligence, robotics, wearable devices and big data, adapting it to the needs of consumers and the food industry.
