So Hungry I could Eat the Plate
Chen Liang-erh, 50, an amateur inventor living in Taipei, Taiwan has perfected an edible plate. It is made from wheat grain, and he plans to mass-produce it with other edible crockery including cups, bowls and food containers.
Will and Guy are aware that he argues that hungry diners, tempted to lick a plate after a delicious meal, can now go a step further and demolish the whole lot. Sadly, we have learned, the plates have the taste of unsalted popcorn - not exactly an exciting culinary delight.
In his favour Chen says the crockery can be boiled and will provide a nutritious meal for your pet. Lovely.
