Press Release: IBM and The Institute of Culinary Education to Publish a Cookbook of Chef Watson-Inspired Recipes
Together, they have carefully crafted, evaluated, and perfected each of these dishes for "pleasantness" (superb taste), "surprise" (innovativeness), and a "synergy" of mouth-watering ingredients that will delight any food lover.
"One of the concepts we wanted to demonstrate with Chef Watson is this notion of discovery and computational creativity," said Florian Pinel, Senior Technical Staff Member, IBM Watson Group. "To discover something new, be it a medical insight or recipe, requires insight into a large body of information and being able to use that insight to make connections and draw conclusions. Whether you're working in the kitchen or the laboratory, Watson's ability to reason and learn can help humans arrive at new discoveries."
Sprinkled throughout the book are cooking tips from the pros at ICE, entertaining anecdotes on the various stages of IBM and ICE's collaboration, and ideas for home cooks to expand their repertoires or spice up current favorites.
"What makes this book so fun is how easy it makes it to pick up things you didn't know and discover combinations you might have never imagined," said Todd Stocke, Vice President, Editorial Director at Sourcebooks. "The pairing of Chef Watson with the masters at ICE is nothing short of a culinary dream team."
From Chef Watson's first recipe ever, the Spanish Almond Crescent, to Creole Shrimp-Lamb Dumplings, Vietnamese Apple Kebab, and Hoof-and-Honey Ale, Cognitive Cooking with Chef Watson introduces home cooks and professional chefs to a whole new world of culinary possibilities.
