Hello ChefTalk

I'm writing from Mission Barns, a venture backed startup in Berkeley, CA creating a better way to make fat. Our process involves isolating cells from an animal, growing the cells in a cultivator and then harvesting the fat. Our end product is identical from what you'd get from an animal, but is radically more sustainable.

We're unveiling the world's first sustainable, delicious cultivated bacon in August (pictures and videos on our website missionbarns.com!).

We're looking to do some market research with chefs about our products. If you're a professional chef who might be interesting in serving our products in the future, please comment here or send me a DM!

So the process is similar to growing mushrooms in a incubator ??
That's right! We often compare it to beer fermentation. We're growing cells inside a large fermenter, except instead of yeast it's mammalian cells, and instead of the product being the liquid, the product is the cells themselves.
