The closest you can get nowadays is 3D printing (which is pretty cool) and 'lab meat', essentially meat grown on a petri dish. Both these technologies are in their infancy so a couple of centuries down the line we may have something approximating replicator technology but not as it's seen on screen in trek.

I just posted this in the "Favorite Trek Technology" thread...but it fits here too...
