edible ink

printed food at the moto restaurant, chicago is created using a modified canon i560 printer, which prints flavoured images onto edible paper. the print cartridges are filled with food-based ‘inks’, the printouts are flavoured by dipping them in a powder of dehydrated soy sauce, squash, sugar, vegetables or sour cream, and then they are frozen, baked or fried. ‘the most common printed dish at moto is the menu. it can literally whet your appetite by providing a taste test of what’s on the menu: tear off and eat a picture of a cow and it will taste like filet mignon.’ read more via j walk blog, via oh gizmo
