Printed technology is expanding across industries, and now it’s reaching the food sector with 3D-printed pasta, as championed by Chef Bernard Faucher at Google’s office in Mountain View, California. Here, employees can enjoy 3D-printed pasta, which are made using 3D printing machines in the company kitchens. According to PSFK, Chef Bernard Faucher uses the 3D printing machines to create customized food options for Google staff.

While 3D printers typically use concrete or plastic as the main component, Chef Faucher uses pasta dough or past shells in his 3D-printed pasta, reports MediaPost. During the printing process, Chef Faucher is further able to control the cooking temperature and time as they correspond to particular foods, such as meat and vegetables. What’s more, approximately 75 percent of the ingredients used by Google’s kitchens are grown locally.
