Neural networks are computer programs that learn by example. Rather than a programmer teaching them step-by-step rules on how to solve a problem, neural networks try to deduce their own rules by looking at examples of lots of successful solutions.

One of the first problems I tried to solve with neural networks, inspired by this post, was generating new cookbook recipes by letting a neural network look at about 30,000 existing recipes. This, as it turns out, is not a great way to get a coherent recipe. With a memory only a few words long, and without any concept that the letters it was choosing corresponded to ingredients and things that were happening to them, the neural net’s recipes were usually inadvisable and frequently impossible.

As it so happens, I was testing out some features of textgenrnn and turned to recipes as a test dataset. As a result, I have some new “gems” to share with you.

Framework: textgenrnn, longtext mode
Memory: 40 characters (default)
Training length: ~15 hours on an Nvidia K80 (via Google Cloud)
Sampling temperature: 0.6


First, allow me to present some of my favorite individual ingredients:

½ teaspoon ground beer
½ cup crushed sherry
1 lavy milk
½ cup fresh minced or worky sugar
½ teaspoon dried margarine
1 ½ teaspoon minced powder
1 single sugar
1 long granulated sugar
1 green cubes
1 spanish water
2 lb beer stock
1 cup cream cheese seed

And now, the recipes:

I guess dividing the 4 sauces into 6 servings is left as an exercise to the reader.

Combine sugar and sugar and sprinkle with the sugar. Place a desired pan, and let stand 1 minute. Add the salt and pepper. Add beef

Remove from pan and add to strainers and simmer until the sauce forms the clear some eggs and so the finger large soup comes out cleandrated with masil cooking lengthwise and the well some of the beef and the steamed sauce. It is the measure of board with a sloth bone. Serve warm. Sprinkle with dry salt, then add the shallots and salt and pepper. Sprinkle with salt, and pepper. Stir until potatoes are softened.
