The newest cookbook on the market was compiled by a chef who “has never tasted a single morsel of food”, the book’s introduction points out. “This culinary prodigy, in fact, has no taste buds, no nose, not any sensual experience of food or drink.”

Watson, IBM’s cognitive system that famously defeated two human grand champions to win the US quiz show Jeopardy, has turned its attention to the kitchen.
The computer was programmed to produce ideas for food combinations that would taste pleasant at a molecular level and that, crucially, had not yet been tried.
Cognitive Cooking with Chef Watson: Recipes for Innovation from IBM & the Institute of Culinary Education contains 65 recipes and is available in hardcover from April 14.
