An ordering app as your waiter and a robot as your chef! More and more examples of these two items are spotted worldwide. The app is common use now and robots are spotted in restaurants as well. They’re an asset at the moment you can’t find enough staff. But we now spotted an Israeli foodtech firm SavorEat that combines it all. Customers order their personalized plant-based hamburger through an app and their robot will 3D print it and cook it to their preferences.

The robot chef of SavorEat is a technological solution to digitally manufacture meat alternatives from non-GMO plant-based proteins, according to individual tastes. They focus on consumer’s needs and are putting the individual front and center. This approach puts the company in the new future of the Food Industry while offering solutions for fast-moving kitchens. The robot chef has been unveiled in collaboration with the Israeli hamburger chain BBB (Burgus Burger Bar). They also connected with Sodexho, which feeds students at major US universities, to start trial the system this year.

Opening – Patron-cuisinier Edwin Muns has taken over the operation of restaurant Poelzicht in Kapel-Avezaath near Tiel. As of September 1, 2021, he reopened the doors under the name Brasserie Poelzicht. After various lockdowns due to corona between November 2021 and February 2022, the entrepreneur can now finally fully open its doors. Unique in the region is the French bistro cuisine combined with strictly French wines.

The Betuwe in the middle of the Netherlands is great region for cycling and since I am part of the ‘cycling gray brigade’, I would love to go there for lunch or dinner during or after a bike ride. The French bistro dishes sound delicious! ^Marjolein
