Mark Post, a medical physiologist at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, has grown a burger in his lab. CNN reports the development cost about $380,000 to develop. If you have that funding and are interested in trying it yourself, here’s what you do:
1. Take muscle stem cells from cattle.
2. Cultivate them in a lab.
3. Combine 20,000 strips of the cultured muscle with lab-grown fat to create synthetic hamburger meat.
Alternatively, you could get invited to a secret London event next week where the burger will be purportedly served for the first time, and see if you can snag a bite.
