There are many products out there in the market today that are focusing on being greener and more environmentally friendly. For example, supermarkets have started to encourage shoppers to use reusable cloth bags instead of plastic bags, and food packaging has also turned towards greener options.
For meat-lovers who are looking for vegan alternatives, it used to be rather difficult to find. Sure, one could argue that food such as mushrooms were a decent substitute as certain species like the portobello mushroom can provide a “meaty” texture, but we all know that it isn’t quite the same.
Impossible Foods made a name for themselves when they first developed a “meatless” burger. While vegan/vegetarian burger options aren’t new, what set Impossible Foods’ creation apart from the competition was that it looked, cooked, and (apparently) tastes like the real thing, except that it wasn’t.
An expert in making pizza could probably make a pie in a relatively short amount of time, but if you’re trying to cater to the masses, then even an expert will probably struggle, especially in terms of consistency. This is where robots can come in handy and the folks at Picnic are showing what the future of pizza-making could look like.
The idea that one day robots could eventually replace certain jobs isn’t exactly a new one. In fact, over in New Delhi, India, it seems that some jobs are already on the verge of being replaced where what could be a first in India, a restaurant has rolled out a pair of robots named Champa and Chameli who will be capable of taking orders and serving customers.
We’ve all received receipts in our life, whether it be the receipt at the restaurant we just ate, receipts for the gadget we just purchased, or receipts from the grocery store. However, the problem with most receipts is that they’re hard to read. This is usually because a lot of them are printed on small sheets of paper, and sometimes the font can be faded or squashed.
There is a growing number of cooking gadgets and appliances that are becoming more connected than ever. For example there are several sous vide devices that can be controlled using a smartphone, so it’s not really a surprise to learn that the Instant Pot will now support Google Assistant.
It has been suggested that our consumption and demand for meat could be hurting the environment in ways we might not have thought of, but for many of us, living a meat-free life does seem to be pretty difficult. This is why some companies, like Beyond Meat, have toyed with the idea of creating “meatless” meat which aims to provide similar levels of satisfaction.
One of the things Japan is known for is its food, so much so that even their convenience stores are also held in high regard by many where you could quite literally have a multi-course meal of good quality in the store itself, thanks to its wide selection of foods. Lawson’s, one of the chains of convenience stores in the country, is also particularly known for their fried chicken.
The tasting of wine can be a rather intimidating experience, especially in the presence of others who might be more experienced. However if you’re worried that maybe your palate isn’t sophisticated enough to discern the various aspects of the wine you’re drinking, not to worry as technology is here to help.
Food delivery services have always been pretty popular, and this is made even more so these days thanks to technology where there are apps that let us order food. However the more food deliveries we request, the more transportation is involved, in which turn is probably not too good for the environment.
There seems to be a growing call to create sustainable food products and more recently, meat has been put on that list where scientists are working to grow meat in a lab without the need to kill any animals. In fact one company by the name of Impossible Foods has created a burger from plants that is said to taste, look, and feel like an actual burger.
The concept of using drones to make deliveries isn’t new and it actually makes a lot of sense. Drones don’t have to deal with the same kind of traffic that a motorcycle, car, or delivery truck has to, which means that in theory it should be a lot faster to get items into the hands of customers.
We’ve known for a while that robots would eventually replace the jobs that we do, or at least some of it. Over in Boston, there’s a restaurant called Spyce that seems to be well on its way of proving just that as the restaurant’s food is completely cooked by robots. All customers have to do is go to the order screen, place their orders, and their food will be made […]
