Bistro In Vitro is a fictitious restaurant with a menu of in vitro dishes that may one day end up on your plate.
Now that the world population is heading for 9 billion in 2050, our current way of producing and consuming meat is fast becoming unsustainable. Global warming, energy consumption, animal diseases and the anticipated worldwide food shortage are just some of the pressing food related issues we will need to address, and that is before we have even considered the much debated issue of animal cruelty and factory farming.
For this project I made 4 films with famous chefs and 3 interviews with food experts.
