Cotton Chicken

Designs On— Food

Wired magazine recently reported that “stem cells are bathed in a nutrient-rich soup; as they grow, the material is stretched to mimic the flexing that gives in vitro meat its texture.” Cotton Chicken is a design concept that builds on this scientific development. It is a pultrusion of cultured chicken meat, spun like cotton candy, or pulled like fresh pasta. It is then seasoned to perfection, flash-fried, and wrapped delicately around a skewer of bamboo.
