Q1 AI to the Rescue Step 2
Your Planning EFFORT WAS successful!
As part of your successful planning efforts, you have been asked to create a cookbook with five or more healthy recipes that the family can use in preparing their meals.
Work with a partner or small group (up to five classmates) to use an AI-powered website, Dish Gen or Let's Foodie, to create five recipes together for the family that lost their home.
Supplies donated: Cans of different beans, tuna fish, chicken, tomatoes, tomato paste, corned beef, evaporated milk, and canned fruit. Pasta: different bags of noodles. Grains: rice, quinoa, lentils, flour, bran, oatmeal and steel cut oats. Fresh foods and vegetables: potatoes, shredded cheese, heads of broccoli and cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, and assorted spices including salt and pepper. Condiments: mustard, catsup, relish.
1. Copy or download the AI Cookbook Collection Slideshow Template to your own Google drive or as a PowerPoint file. Complete the slides on your cookbook that ask for ‘Starting Ingredients.’ You must start your recipe with at least five items. You may think of your own favorite foods and can include things like: Cheese, no cheese, nuts, no nuts, noodles, beans, rice, etc. You may want to consider different food groups in your recipe: Proteins, Vegetables, Fruits, Grains, Dairy, and spices or herbs.
The AI-powered kitchen assistants will combine your ingredients to create a unique recipe! Take a screenshot of the recipe that the AI assistant creates for you and paste onto the appropriate cookbook page.
4. After you have finalized your recipes give a copy to your teacher and share it with your own family.
Dish Gen Tips
DISH GEN Recipe Creation Tips
- Be Specific. Provide a clear and detailed description of the type of recipe you would like to create. Rather than 'pudding', try 'a rich chocolate pudding for my 5-year-old's birthday'
- Ingredients. Request ingredients you already have in your kitchen. You can search for multiple ingredients at once by separating them with a comma.
- Meal Type. Include a specific meal type such as breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert.
- Time. Request recipes that take less than a certain amount of time to make.
- Go Advanced. Use the advanced search controls to request the inclusion / exclusion of certain ingredients, dietary considerations, and more.
Let's Foodie Tips
- Visit this link to the site (Let's Foodie) so that you do not have to install an Extension for Chrome.
- Enter your ingredients in the space provided, you might include terms such as, soup, casserole, baked, grilled, etc.
- Like magic, a recipe appears below the prompt.
- The site suggests this warning: "We cannot take responsibility for poorly cooked or unappetizing recipes. These recipes are generated by AI and have therefore not been tested in the real world. Please use common sense when cooking any of these recipes."
- This would be good to add in your cookbook, unless you have actually tried it yourself and can make a recommendation. It is only a suggestion from a non-human algorithm.
