As 3D printing and pop-up shops are two things that are very of-the-moment, the organizers of the London 3D Printshow decided to bring them together to showcase how printing food is reshaping the industry.

The pop-up restaurant in London features a Michelin-starred chef who will compose 3D-printed meals using a variety of fresh, seasonal ingredients. As well as allowing the chefs to get creative with compositions, 3D printing technology also provides the opportunity to enhance flavor with unique shapes and textures. Although these 3D-printed foods look complex to create, it's anticipated that 3D food printers have the potential to become as essential to homes as microwaves in the future, turning the average person into a culinary artist.
