Evolving from the Dovetailed experience, which originally mixed basic molecular gastronomy with pneumatic extrusion 3D printing technology, the nūfood tasting experience sets out to blend classics with contemporary dining concepts. New flavours, textures and shapes will elevate the dining experience with every bite.
How is this possible?
Nūfood’s journey started about two years ago, while the team was researching materials for 3D printing and decided to build a 3D printer that extended modernist cuisine techniques to create juicy flavour bursts with personalised shapes, textures and flavours.
The result of this is the “Damson” edition prototype that serves edible, juicy flavour bursts, a feat no other 3D printer can currently deliver. The Dovetailed team has been working hard to develop a series of 3D printer prototypes that are functional and beautiful in delivering delicious flavours in a matter of minutes.
While finalizing the device for manufacture and developing the flavour ecosytem, they dediceded to bring the taste of nūfood to you.
The recently launched campaign on Kickstarter, will support the next phase of the journey, striving to bring the nūfood kitchen robot into all homes.
Nūfood technology consists of three elements:
- a kitchen robot that prints juicy flavour bursts in 3D
- a smartphone application that allows you to design these flavour bursts in seconds
- natural flavour extracts and pairings
Nūfood have developed advanced techniques and recipes that allow us to handle any type of edible liquid, such as honey, oils or even alcohol.
To get it right the team has been getting great feedback by taking nūfood on the road. Thye’ve spoken to renowned chefs at Taste of London and early adopters at FoodTechWeek as well as talking at many other food and innovation events.
The nūfood Team.
Vaiva is an interaction designer and a serial entrepreneur, and runs a user experience design company called Dovetailed. The Dovetailed team, which includes industrial designers, engineers and food scientists, have designed the nūfood 3D printer to be elegant, beautiful and robust. The nūfood 3D printer has won multiple design and business innovation awards, including winning the Smart Kitchen Startup Showcase competition in Seattle, USA in October 2016.
From Dovetailed, Robert leads the design of the nūfood 3D printer, whilst Alfy leads the research and development of our unique flavours. Tom leads the packaging design, and Ben has been testing our recipes. Sarah, with her background in business and finance, is our creator of opportunities and leads business development.
The team loves experimenting with food and technology, and has decided to make food history by bring 3D printing into the kitchens of foodies around the world.
