According to the organizers:
In this inaugural Future Market dinner series, we take you on a journey through the past, present and what we speculate will be the future of protein consumption.
Each course is an edible exploration of the cultural, nutritional, and environmental zeitgeist around the future of protein. From the wild roaming protein sources of the 1800s to the next frontier of protein from insects and plants, we will give you a full experience of where our food system has been and where it’s going.
Spanning three centuries – from our ancestors to our great-grandchildren – you will be part of a thought-provoking, multisensory journey featuring protein sources such as traditional wild and farmed animals, the emerging range of insects and algae, surprisingly rich fungi and fruits, as well as a glimpse of the innovation in engineered proteins, designed to minimize environmental impact while still delivering the eating experience we all love.
This dinner will be held at the Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) Lab in Brooklyn, NY, one of the best venues in the world to explore the culture, history, science, production, and commerce of food and drink.
It’s all delicious, and designed to feed your mind as well as your body.
