I’ve been training a neural network (based on this open-source neural network framework from Andrej Karpathy) to generate cookbook recipes. The results are … rarely delicious.

Some sample recipe titles:

Onion-Orange Brownies
Shredded Cheese Bananas
Monk Blebberra’s Crusted Carrots
Crockery Mist
Tamarind Bustard Beans
Choices Together Clam Lanting
Banana Washed
Hen Pan
Oven Meat
Chest Soup
Berry Lerning Keef Pudding
Cheese Frinds
Sauce-Lavy’s Mustard Cookies
Snup Fruit: Bright Grilled Evaporated Milk
All-Foag-Day Cream
Masty Bacon
Philips Chicken With Upright Cheesecrumbs
Chocolate Spinach Prunes
