Would you like to order a fake meat burger today?

What would you feel if the meat from the burger you’ll be eating is not exactly cow’s meat? In fact, the meat doesn’t really come from a slaughtered animal for food consumption. Nope, would you be willing to try to eat a burger with meat derived from plant products engineered in a Silicon Valley lab?
