Ghost Chef.

Augmenting and supporting creativity for the future kitchen.

COMPUTATION, CREATIVITY AND KITCHEN KNOWLEDGE.

Machines have played a role in simplifying the ‘manual’ labor of chefs for years: in recent history, for example, sous-vide technology has helped chefs reach unprecedented levels of precision. But is manual labor what chefs desire from future tools and application of technologies in the kitchen? Certainty not for many common home cooks, but even at the high end of fine dining, precision is not the most valuable application of technology.

BEYOND RECIPE BOOKS AND CO-CREATING WITH A MACHINE.

An essential part of a chef’s training comes in the form of apprenticeship. Learning from other chefs, through observation and then by trial-and-error, is how practical knowledge and techniques are learned. Creativity is then inspired from this foundation, either to evolve or disrupt what was learned from before. How could we recreate a digital version of this apprenticeship experience?
