What we eat today shapes tomorrow. Considering the world’s food production is challenging the planet, we need to eat in alternative ways – now and in the future. Future Food Today is a collection of recipes based on future food trends, straight from from the SPACE10 food lab and test kitchen.
Future Food Today is a collection of recipes based on future food trends, coming straight out of the SPACE10 food lab and test kitchen. The book expresses SPACE10’s beliefs around food and food production. From “dogless hotdogs” and “algae chips”, to “bug burgers” and “microgreen popsicles”, it’s packed with dishes we could one day be eating on a regular basis.
It also includes simple guides to producing food locally and sustainably, and explains how to use alternative ingredients, gastronomic innovation and technology—such as hydroponic farming—to offer an alternative to the planet’s growing demand for food and excessive consumption of meat.
SPACE10 is IKEA's future-living lab. Their purpose is to enable a better, more meaningful and more sustainable way of life. Based in Copenhagen's meatpacking district, they seek to identify emerging trends and design innovative responses to the major challenges expected to affect us all in the future.
Through their Local Food lab, they are exploring new, imaginative and sustainable ways of growing, making and distributing healthy food in the heart of our cities. The recipes in this book emerged from this very lab.
