Why do certain flavours go well together? E.g. chicken/coleslaw, tomato/mozarella, spinach/garlic, walnuts/honey, tuna/mayonaise?(r/askscience)
The IBM Watson team put together a set of recipes that were composed by the technology known as the Watson Discovery Advisor. The technology was designed to identify semantic concepts in a corpus of documents, then find patterns across all the documents.
The system was loaded with corpora from three sources: 1) Recipes from Bon Appetit magazine, 2) Chemical definitions for cooking ingredients, and 3) linking it all together, a database of “hedonic psychophysics”, a listing of how we experience different flavors from different ingredients.
The machine was then asked to develop new recipes based on knowledge from these three sources.
You can see some of the results here: Chef Watson.
And a cookbook was published: Cognitive Cooking with Chef Watson at Amazon
