Printed Meat

by Barbara Loots

“This week, Israel’s Redefine Meat raised US$29 million in funding to build a large-scale pilot factory
that will produce 3D-printed beef cuts, ranging from rump to brisket.”

What shall we print for supper, dear?
A roast? A steak? A brisket?
What beast it comes from isn’t clear—
but if you’re game, we’ll risk it!

A clever young chef from Marseille
Said, “Print out the evening’s entrée!”
It wasn’t the menu
He meant for his venue,
But Redefine Ribeye. Oy vey!
