Celebrity Chef Tyler Florence Says Recipes Are Dead - Food News
From The Kitchn - October 12, 2017

Celebrity chef Tyler Florence recently made the bold declaration that recipes are dead while attending Seattle's Smart Kitchen Summit. In fact, he feels our whole approach to making foodfrom purchasing groceries and stocking our cupboards to choosing, prepping, and cooking our mealsis out of sync with the way we actually live now.

"Recipes served a purpose back in the day, but inflexible recipes do not work with the modern lifestyle anymorethey are too long, complicated, and require too much pre-planning," says Florence. "Today's recipe content is one dimensionalit does not know who I am, my family's nutrition needs and likes/dislikes, the food I have in my fridge, or the appliances I have in my home." Florence goes on to say that most cookbooks have about 125 recipes, but the average cook only uses about five and that they are are not designed for the modern-day busy person.

His solution? Innit's Connected Food Platform, a high-tech platform thateschews classic recipes in favor of a computer-based integrated hub where food purchases and preferences are tracked and recipes are customized based on nutritional needs and what ingredients you should cook before they go bad in your fridge. The technology integrates all the disjointed aspects of cookingshopping, meal selection, preparation, and cookingin order to simplify and relieve the stress of getting a meal on the table night after night.
