Hey…Haven’t I Had This Burger Before?

Posted by Mark on March 4, 2007

And, oddly enough, that’s the point.

The cloned steak was served medium rare. Inside the unusually hushed atrium of Campanile, the guests lifted slices of beef onto their plates. Executive chef Mark Peel had prepared the porterhouse with fleur de sel and cracked black pepper before pan-searing it with a little canola oil — a simple preparation to highlight the meat’s natural flavor.

It was the centerpiece of a dinner party convened to taste the future of food.

So the future is- to REPLICATE the past, uh…so to speak. And to duplicate it…exactly. Hmmm…I have a hunch this is going to lead to some difficult marketing and product-labeling dilemmas.

What if you advertise an ‘original recipe’ or an ‘original product’?

Several prospective diners declined the invitation.

I guess they didn’t want to have the same meal twice.
