Mark Post has been given €300,000 to make a hamburger, in one year. Easy money, you might think, but try doing that without using meat that has come from an animal.

Even if it does become a viable industrial option, which I am sure it will, I think people will not to take to it, saying things like: It doesn't taste the same. (Even if they can't discern the difference in a test or every day life), It's not natural, amongst a host of other excuses.

I mind one company in the UK actually sold clone cow meat to the unsuspecting market in the last 2-3 years as a test, and as expected some old women went and complained to some arm of the government. :/

For his first burger, Prof Post intends to harvest a number of these thin strips, mince them up with onion and spices, and then get a celebrity chef to cook up the hamburger. "It would be great if someone like Jamie Oliver agreed to cook it for us, and a famous actress ate it."

Well, he seems confident. Good luck.
