Always wanted to own a piece of art for yourself? Then we might have some good news for you. The museum for contemporary art in Amsterdam, the Stedelijk Museum, has added The In Vitro Meat Cookbook to its public art collection, hence it is officially art! The book, containing 45 speculative recipes with lab-grown meat, was part of last year’s exhibition Dream Out Loud – Designing for Tomorrow’s Demands. You can find our award-winning art piece on our web shop.

What better way to celebrate Easter than with a fun egg hunt? This year you can upgrade your hunt and search for next nature eggs instead! Do away with dishonest health claims for eggs and uncertain promises of organic, free-range hens. Find Honest Eggs on the shelves of the NANO Supermarket at DGTL Festival in Amsterdam this weekend. Or what about some Marrow Eggs? These dainty “eggs” aren’t filled with yolk, but with snow-white cultured marrow. You can get a “taste” of the marrow egg and 29 other exquisite recipes at our Meat the Future expo at CUBE Design Museum in Kerkrade. The exhibition is opened on Easter and Easter Monday from 10:00 to 17:00. The holidays are filled with traditions, it is up to us to create new ones. Happy Easter everybody!
We are no strangers to cultured meat. Back in 2013, professor Mark Post made the world’s first in vitro hamburger with cultured beef. Now, lab-grown chicken will soon come to our table, as Memphis Meats recently announced to have successfully grown the first poultry for human consumption.
