When asked to come up with an idea of a product to test under the laser cutter at NYDesigns by Design Glut. Jan Habraken & Alissia Melka-Teichroew decided that they had cut pretty much every material but food. This is where the hunt started, what foods can we cut or etch and also create something fun and something that would be too complicated to do manually (why else would you laser cut!). We decided sandwiches, pancakes, chocolate bars, sugar glass, tuna (can you imagine the seared edge the laser could make!). There was only time to etch some pancakes and cut some piggy “ham & cheese” sandwiches.
Chefs: Jan Habraken, Alissia Melka-Teichroew and Trotec Professional 1500 laser cutter will cut a variety of food into a crazy laser cut last supper menu.
