Tasty paper

Edible paperImage yourself having the stuff every day? How about eating some paper for a change? No kidding! At Moto restaurant in Chicago is offering food that will change the way that people perceive and eat food. All this is made possible by using a modified Canon i560 inkjet printer that prints flavoured images onto edible paper. The print cartridges are filled with food-based "inks", including juiced carrots, tomatoes and purple potatoes, and the paper tray contains sheets of soybean and potato starch. The printouts are flavoured by dipping them in a powder of dehydrated soy sauce, squash, sugar, vegetables or sour cream, and then they are frozen, baked or fried. Now, that's high-tech food for a change!
