Google Serves 3D Printed Pasta To Its Employees
Google has been long associated with new technology and most innovative and unique ideas related to the information technology seem to emanate from its stables. Now, the employees of Google have taken it a step further by ordering 3D printed pastas for lunch which makes them free to customize their options.
The Man Behind The Printed Pasta
Chef Bernard Faucher, the exhibition chef at Google headquarters, is the man behind the experimentation that is responsible for providing the Google employees with fun and food during their lunch hours. The chef literally creates art with pasta dough by allowing it to be inserted within a 3D printer along with the veggies. A strict eye on time and temperature are all that is needed to produce the most amazingingly shaped pasta ever. Makes the whole idea of lunch so much more fun for the employees at Mountain View, the headquarters of Google. “My food has a very distinct and customisable shape." is what Faucher has to say.
The printer can also be utilized to print a range of other ingredients namely chocolates and sugar. Is the dessert served in the shape of a flower or star or is your name printed out on your plate? Google hasn’t corroborated the facts yet and details about its exciting employees’ lunch menu remain unknown. Faucher, who also works at the ‘Dance New England’ cafeteria revealed that the Google kitchen was choc-a-bloc with all kinds of temperature control gadgets that allows meat to be slow cooked throughout the night. The chef also disclosed that the Google management get whole pigs which are divided into different sections and cooked accordingly in their kitchen. No wonder that Google is reckoned to be one of the best employers in the world. We wonder whether the employees are allowed to take home the bacon though. Any guesses?
What next? Maybe the Google chef would like to introduce bio-printed meats on his menu soon. What is technology after all if it doesn’t come to the aid of human beings? And being different is regarded as cool now. We might soon be having brands of differently shaped veggies as well as ingredients flooding the market courtesy the 3D food printing technology. Maybe Google would like to have a head start there as well. After all it had honored Julia Child recently via its foodle, a sign that says Google is interested in food now!
