Gift Alert, Designer 3D Printed Chocolates Exist

Cool Sh*t / 31 October 2018

3D printing meets gastronomy in a new range of artisanal delights courtesy of Chocolates by Ryan L Foote.

The advent of 3D printing has revolutionised the manufacturing process as we know it. The technology has been used to make everything from medical implants to artificial body parts, sneakers and even edible meat. Now, in a decadent and delicious turn, 3D printed chocolates have arisen to the fore. Melbourne/Hong Kong based Artist-Designer Ryan L Foote is reinventing chocolates for the Digital Age, combining his love of chocolate with innovative 3D-printing technologies to create a truly unique range of contemporary chocolates.

Resembling art rather than food, Foote has created a range of chocolates both visually intriguing and reflective of his contemporary design. Having spent the last three years living between Melbourne and Hong Kong, Foote aims to capture the signature flavour of these regions.

The collections encapsulate unfamiliar Australian botanicals, traditional Hong Kong inspired flavours, and a range of single origin chocolates from the Asia Pacific region. In the Australian collection, you can expect to find flavours like white chocolate and wattleseed, lemon myrtle and macadamia nut, chocolate and mountain pepperberry and avocado smash. The Hong Kong collection offers everything from egg tart to buttery pineapple bun, red bean ganache with salted coconut.

Complimenting Foote’s signature chocolates is a range of hand-made ceramic pieces, including 3D printed ceramic cups, (perfect for hot chocolates!), plus plates with crystalline glazes. Christmas gift inspo, anyone?

Chocolates by Ryan L Foote is currently running a Kickstarter campaign until November 18th for pre-orders, and will release the ranges for Christmas 2018.
