Technology seems to have inspired a chef to design an amazing invention, edible ink made of liquidised food to print a picture snack on low-cal edible paper using a specially designed printer.

According to The sun, chef Homaru Cantu’s food paper can even be downloaded from the internet. He adapted an ink-jet printer with computer wizards from local firm Deep Labs.

They first experimented with ink made of crushed carrots, tomatoes and purple potatoes. He has already started printing edible menus at his restaurant Moto in Chicago.

Diners can rip up the menu and toss it in their soup or have the sheets baked or fried. “You can make an ink-jet printer do just about anything. Just imagine going through a magazine and looking at an ad for pizza. You wonder what it tastes like so you rip a page out and eat it,” he added.
