Michelin-starred chef Marco Pierre White just announced that he will serve 3D printed whole cut steak, made completely free of animal-based products, at his UK restaurants.
The innovative alternative protein comes from Israeli food tech company Redefine Meat, using a proprietary artificial intelligence that reproduces the complex structures of animal muscles with plant-based ingredients. White – who mentored several famous chefs including Gordon Ramsay – revealed that he believes the new plant-based steak successfully replicates the look, flavor, and texture of beef. White plans to begin offering the plant-based, 3D printed steaks at his 20 steakhouse restaurants across the United Kingdom starting this month. Currently, reports claim that the vegan steaks will be priced between £20 and £30, to make the plant-based alternative as affordable as its animal-based counterparts.
