In Vitro Recipe #3: Magic Meatballs
July 31st 2014

Magic meatballs playfully familiarize children with the concept of in vitro meat. Just like modeling clay, a package of magic meatballs comes in a rainbow of meat colors, with exciting add-ins for flavor, texture and nutrition. Kids love to help out in the kitchen by transforming healthy in vitro meat into beach balls, Easter eggs or even pint-sized snowmen.

With the solar system activity pack, kids can create fun meatballs while learning about the planets. Use these serving suggestions to make your own tasty universe. To complete the look of an outer space expedition, serve the meatballs with black pasta and a sprinkle of ‘stardust’, or Parmesan cheese.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
