Si has tenido suerte y te han regalado la edición “Mil platos del mundo”, cada diez páginas podrás degustar un exquisito plato.

“Forget takeout, eat a print-out”:http://www.newscientist.com/article.ns?id=dn6983 (New Scientist)
It is not quite the stuff of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but the fare coming out of Homaru Cantu’s kitchen is just as bizarre. In Roald Dahl’s famous children’s book, chewing gum is made to taste like a three-course meal. Cantu, a cordon-bleu chef, has modified an ink-jet printer to create dishes made of edible paper that can taste like anything from birthday cake to sushi.
“You can make an ink-jet printer do just about anything,” says Cantu, who is head chef at the Moto restaurant in Chicago, US, and a keen advocate of the high-tech kitchen. The printer’s cartridges are loaded with fruit and vegetable concoctions instead of ink, and the paper tray contains edible sheets of soybean and potato starch. Cantu then prints out tasty versions of images he has downloaded from the web.
When the artwork rolls out, he dips it in a powder made of soy sauce, sugar, vegetables or dehydrated sour cream, and then fries, freezes or bakes the sheets. The chef has also taken to printing his menus this way: diners can spice up their soup by ripping up the menu and tossing in the pieces.
