OUT NOW: The In Vitro Meat Cookbook

August 6th 2014

Hooray! Our In Vitro Meat Cookbook is now officially available. At the launch event creative director Dr. Koert van Mensvoort, handed the first copy out to Prof. Mark Post, who exactly one year ago presented the World's first lab grown hamburger.

Using the format of the cookbook as a storytelling medium, the In Vitro Meat Cookbook is a visually stunning exploration of the new “food cultures” lab-grown meat might create. This book approaches lab-grown meat not just from a design and engineering perspective, but also from a societal and ethical one.

This cookbook features dozens of recipes that are delicious, uncanny, funny and inspiring. Think of meat paint, revived dodo wings, meat ice cream, cannibal snacks, steaks knitted like scarves and see-through sushi grown under perfectly controlled conditions. Though you can’t cook these recipes just yet, they’ve all been developed with strict culinary rigor and will provide abundant food for thought and discussion.

You can order the book from our webstore. Journalist can download the mediakit.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
