DailyDirt: Engineering Food For Every Occasion...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The preparation of food has changed a quite a bit over the last hundred years or so. Sure, some things will probably never go out of style, but a few dishes will never be the same once food engineers get their hands on them. Here are a few quick examples of foods that folks are working on. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Of course bananas don't have very much genetic diversity. They're under 200 years old.

    oxymoron?

    If it's going to call itself a burger, it had better have been mooing.
