'Collaborative cooking' lets chefs team up to create remote dish

Machine puts team work into action; chefs are not even in the same room.

A machine that lets different chefs cook one dish remotely could be the next big thing in food technology.

The brains behind “Collaborative Cooking”, an experimental food project, have designed an interactive digital cooking machine that allows up to five chefs to create a meal together from their computers.

The brainchild of Christian Isberg, Petter Johansson Kukacka, Lasse Korsgaard and Carl Berglöf, the project aimed to see if chefs could cook together without direct communication.

The machine is hooked up to a digital platform that receives instructions from the chefs and carries them out as physical actions.

It features 35 different ingredient and function options, including temperature control and stirring.

Each time one of the chefs performs an action, the machine prints a receipt, keeping a digital and physical record of the dialogue.

The slow cooking sessions last between 10 and 20 hours, and chefs can react to each other’s decisions, choosing to add spices or adapt techniques.

Collaborative Cooking will be demonstrated at the Atelier Food event in Sweden on June 13. – AFP Relaxnews
