We situate the 3D printing of food in a ‘culinary turn’ of uptake in domestic settings. We suggest a shift from a pull-by market technology approach to 3D printing as a technology to an interest in creative, participative domestic experimentation with food and 3DP. There is potential for new appetites maybe ‘pulled’ by the lure of play and uptake of 3D printing in the cultural making and appetites shaped in the wider context of nutrition, sustainability and a circular economy.
