Flav the A.I. Chef

Ever wondered what a beef burger designed by artificial intelligence (A.I.) would taste like?

We used an A.I. tool, affectionately known as 'Flav', to come up with unique (and delicious) ingredient pairing for burgers, which were then sense-checked by chefs.

Using Flav, new ways of flavour matching that would complement each other if eaten together were discovered. Flav also helped to bring a unique New Zealand dimension to possible flavour combinations by incorporating native plants/ingredients.

The result was a Beef and Kawakawa Burger with Coffee Mayo and Cranberry Tomato Sauce!
