Much like oysters in the ocean, Oyster Yachts is known for churning out beautiful things. In 2011, the company unveiled the Oyster 625 Bandido, a light and airy boat designed to cut through sea waters like a knife.  Aboard the ship, you and up to five guests can enjoy modern, luxurious accomodations that are as spacious as they are beautiful. Keep an eye out for details such as the teak paneled soles, white leather upholstery, and comfortable sitting areas.

The Oyster 625 Bandido is available to purchase by contacting the Oyster charter, with prices starting at approximately $2 million.

Food Ink.Το πρώτο εστιατόριο που σερβίρει 3D φαγητά είναι γεγονός


Το pop up εστιατόριο Food Ink, λοιπόν, στο Λονδίνο σερβίρει πιάτα με φαγητά που έχουν φτιαχτεί αποκλειστικά με την τεχνολογία της 3D εκτύπωσης. Το μενού αποτελείται από 9 πιάτα, ορεκτικά, κυρίως και επιδόρπιο και βασική προϋπόθεση είναι η συνταγή να βασίζεται σε κρεμώδεις και αφρώδεις υφές, καθώς οτιδήποτε μπορεί να μετατραπεί σε πάστα και μους, όπως το χούμους από διάφορα όσπρια, τυρί, ζύμη σοκολάτα μπορεί να εκτυπωθεί και να στηθεί ένα άκρος δημιουργικό πιάτο.

Το εστιατόριο μπορεί να σερβίρει έως 10 άτομα κάθε βράδυ, αποκλειστικά προερχόμενα από την καλά μελετημένη guest list και ένα πλήρες γεύμα κοστίζει το καθόλου ευκαταφρόνητο ποσό των 250 λιρών! Σεφ του Food Ink είναι οι Joel Castanye και Mateu Blanch, οι οποίοι δημιούργησαν τις συνταγές και φροντίζουν το στήσιμο των πιάτων.

Αυτό που κάνει ακόμα πιο ενδιαφέρον αυτό το εστιατόριο είναι ότι ο εξοπλισμός, δηλαδή τα σερβίτσια, τα ποτήρια και τα μαχαιροπίρουνα είναι επίσης φτιαγμένα με 3D εκτύπωση και σχεδιασμένα από την καλλιτέχνη Iwona Lisiecka, καθώς επίσης και οι καρέκλες, οι οποίες είναι σχεδιασμένες από τον Arthur Mamou-Mani.

Is this the future of fine dining? Restaurant where all the food and even the table is 3D printed – but it will cost you £250 a head

  • Food Ink in London claims to be world’s first 3D-printing restaurant
  • Everything, from the food to the furniture is created using a 3D-printer
  • Diners will also wear virtual reality headsets to enhance the experience 

 

London now plays host to a range of ‘hipster’ restaurants, from cafes which let you stroke a cat while you have a coffee, to the UK’s first cereal-speciality diner.

The latest to join the list of quirky eateries claims to be the world’s first 3D-printing restaurant where everything from the furniture to the food is created using the technology.

Food Ink will be offering a nine course menu that will be printed to order when it opens in the UK’s capital later this month – but it will set customers back a whopping £250 a head.

On their website, Food Ink says that their mission is to explore the overlap between dining and technology-enhanced user experience.

However, critics have questioned why anyone would want to pay £250 for food ground into a paste and to eat with plastic cutlery.  

Food Ink state: ‘We believe that technology needs to serve a purpose and we are using it to add magic to the magic.

‘We are putting at work most innovative technologies, like 3D-printing and augmented reality, in order to elaborate the most exquisite interactive edible experience. 

‘While there is no real magic here, our energy is dedicated to make every moment an enchantment.’ 

Guests at Food Ink will experience a nine-course menu, produced via live real-time 3D-printing.

Details of the menu are strictly under wraps, however Sasha Mather, Communications Director at Food Ink told MailOnline: ‘Meat is tricky to print for sanitary concerns and in terms of generating a genuine texture or «mouth feel».’ 

The 3D-printer used is made by ‘byFlow’, and can only process materials in the form of a paste. 

The robotic limb on the 3D printers (pictured) has greater precision than any human hand and so can produce intricate designs with the food

Ms Mather said: ‘For now, the primary material has to take the from of a paste, because it is extruded through the byFlow cartridge needle in the same way a chef would, through a pastry bag. 

‘The robotic limb has greater precision than any human hand, however, and it also facilitates control of the molecular gastronomy of the printed food.’ 

Sugary candies in simple geometric designs can be printed in two to three minutes, while a more complex plate can take up to five minutes to print

For those who cannot visit the restaurant themselves, the event is also being live-streamed to the world. 

As well as 3D-printing the food, the restaurant’s tables, chairs, lamps and even utensils have all been created using the technology.

To add to the futuristic dining experience, guests will also be able to use virtual reality headsets, and listen to music composed by an artificial intelligence computer. 

On their website, Food Ink add: ‘The goal of Food Ink is to use the universal language of food as a fun and accessible way to promote awareness about the amazing possibilities of 3D-printing and other promising new technologies. 

A previous menu featured the '3D Boscana dessert - Nocilla, Chocolate Cream, Hazelnut Polvoron, Milk Ice Cream, Dutch Chocolate Leaves, and 3D-printed centre spiral

‘Our 3D-printing dinner series serve as a platform for a public conversation about how these emerging technologies are rapidly challenging and changing the way we eat, create, share and live.’ 

While Food Ink claims that theirs is the world’s first 3D-printing restaurant, a pop-up in London called ‘3D Printshow Kitchen’ in May last year also served a menu of purely 3D-printed food. 

Food Ink may represent the future of fine dining, however it comes at a cost – dinner per person at the restaurant will set you back £250.

At previous events, Food Ink have created microchip-like designs from 3D-printed chocolate

An Evening at One Of The Most Prestigious Private Dining Clubs In The World

Having planned a trip to the U.K., Jason Bangerter Executive Chef of Langdon Hall, provided me with an introduction to Mosimann’s in London. As most people in the know recognize, Mosimann’s is one of London’s premiere private clubs run by none other than Michelin-starred chef Anton Mosimann (OBE).

The son of Swiss restaurateurs, the esteemed chef has hospitality in his blood, so it was natural to follow in his parent’s footsteps, first helping in the family restaurant where his love for all things culinary began. At 15 he apprenticed at a local hotel and received the coveted Chef de Cuisine Diploma, at just 25. Three years later, he was Maître Chef des Cuisines at the famous Dorchester Hotel in London and during his 13-year tenure was awarded two Michelin stars, a first for any hotel restaurant outside of France.

In 1988 Mosimann acquired a Scottish Presbyterian church in Belgravia and created his first namesake restaurant, an exclusive Dining Club. After the club, came Mosimann’s Party Service, which earned him the Royal Warrant of Appointment to HRH the Prince of Wales for Catering Services. He even catered the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, hosted by Prince Charles. Next came The Mosimann Academy in Battersea, with its phenomenal list of cooking courses and an extensive library of over 6,000 cookbooks.

Both of Anton’s sons, Philipp and Mark, joined Mosimann’s in 2007 bringing their impressive experiences throughout Europe’s culinary industry, into the family business. Chef does not like chaos in the kitchen, unlike some I’ve been exposed to, this is a quiet, clean and peaceful kitchen (no shouting or yelling) with what appears to be an unflappable staff working like a well-oiled machine. The dining club has seven private dining rooms of various sizes. They are brilliantly designed and individually sponsored by distinguished marques including Lalique, Bentley, Montblanc, Parmigiani, Fleurier and Garrard.

The Montblanc Room (for two) is probably the world’s smallest private dining room, enchanting and at the same time sensual, with oyster colored walls highlighted by a magnificent crystal chandelier. The Lalique Room seats 12 and is magnificently designed in muted hues of oyster, chrome and steel tones. But it’s really all about the crystal; the chairs have crystal buttons, the table top is fashioned from a single, solid piece of glass and each table foot is comprised of 551 pounds of pure Lalique crystal, a beautiful piece of art.

The stairway walls are lined with photographs of Anton Mosimann with dignitaries including Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Princess Diana, Prince Charles and celebrities who have visited the club. It’s a historical time capsule of who’s who on the public stage. One of the most beautiful rooms, oddly enough, is the ladies powder room, tastefully designed to resemble a Parisian boudoir. The décor simply transports you to another time.

Perched up in The Balcony Bar on Mezzanine level affords guests beautiful views of the dining room below. The Bar, with its leather club chairs is warm, plushy and comfortable. This is where I spent an evening with Mark Mosimann, enjoying the club’s excellent cuisine. Mark joined Mosimann’s after four years in Shanghai where he was  General Manager of the Laris restaurant. The eatery is known for its food that is not only good, but good for you or “cuisine naturelle.” They reduce the use of salt and sugar, always use the freshest of ingredients (it’s a cardinal sin not to), and, where possible, substitute natural yogurt, fromage blanc and tofu for oil, butter, cream and alcohol.

Mosimann’s signature menu includes classic, well-loved dishes like Scottish salmon and Dorset crab, mushroom risotto (Queen Mother’s favorite dish), roast lamb and Anton’s famous bread and butter pudding. Some items on the menu have been served since the restaurant opened 25 years ago, such as the pudding that is light and fluffy, almost like mousse and extraordinarily delicious.

There are also house wines and Champagne bottled under Mosimann’s private label. The Champagne is sourced from Epernay, and the wine cellar features the finest collection of wines, housed in a glass room, visible to all. While I enjoyed the marvelous cuisine, Mark filled me in on his life between graduating from the Lausanne Hotel Management School and heading to Mosimann’s. His work experience took him to many fine establishments in Switzerland, Beijing, London and then San Francisco.

Once dinner was finished we were offered Champagne truffles and a sampling of petit fours. Anton is still chairman of the company, but with Philipp and Mark managing the club, cooking school and catering business, he’s been allowed the time to do the things he loves the most: travel and cook around the world at private events.

Get The 411 On The Porsche 911 R

Porsche

With a 500 horsepower engine, you better believe that the «R» in the Porsche 911 R stands for «racing.» In addition to being ultra powerful, this vehicle is lighter than its predecessors, weighing in at a cool 3,0251 pounds. This light weight, combined with the impressive engine, allows the car to reach speeds of up to 200 mph and go from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 3.7 seconds. If that isn’t impressive enough, the automobile also comes with customized leather bucket seats, as well as a red and green 1960’s throwback racing stripe on the center console.

The Porsche 911 R will be available at dealerships worldwide later this summer, beginning at  $184,900.
