Meat the Future

Dessert Goals: Bistro In Vitro Ice Cream

In the upcoming episode of Dutch youth education series Denktank (translated think tank) philosopher Stine Jensen and eight teenagers will explore the future of food. They will ask themselves where it comes from and what you can do with it. Speculating on gastronomic improvements in their school canteen, they will challenge their eating habits through a visionary four-course meal. From a shake that includes the recommended daily intake of nutrients, to a crunchy toast with grasshopper and some delightful crickets. The kids will conclude their meal with some meat-flavored ice cream, freshly scooped from our Bistro In Vitro ice cream cart. What will they think about these alternative dishes?

The episode will be broadcasted on Sunday, December 11th, at 11:20 on NPO 3, you can also watch it online.
