My first attempt with Chef Watson. “Irish Smokey Bacon Cookies”

I finally got access to Chef Watson in work. There has been a beta running for a while, but they opened it up for IBM’ers (limited access).

Playing with it for a while, it is clearly still in Beta. I found some recipes had typos in them, or incorrect terms. But the system does make it clear that the steps are suggestions and not fixed guidelines.

Also for the first recipe I had to reduce the amount of ingredients by a factor of four. It said it serves 19, but even at the reduced amount I was able to make 18 cookies.

My only other complaint about the system is that it is geared towards Americans. In that everything is measured in cups/sticks/lbs. Thankfully I got a nice app called “Cups!” to do the conversion for me.

I could get it to create some funky recipes, but I settled for two for testing. I didn’t have all the ingredients yet for the second one, so I will post that later.

For the moment I give you “Irish Smoked Bacon Cookies” below.

IrishSmokedBaconCookies

Some of the key ingredients are bacon (rashers), raisins, honey, maple syrup, vanilla.

This was the second batch, as the first one I used too much salt (did I mention I can’t cook). Visually they don’t look appealing (at least to me). The taste however is “new”. My brain can’t figure out if it is savoury or sweet. Overall they taste fine though. Everyone who tried them said they were nice. I honestly was expecting a travesty.

Although not part of the recipe, I tried one with cream cheese and another with chocolate (to figure out where it fits). Both actually tasted OK which left me more confused.

I’ll be bringing them into work to see what people think.

The next recipe is “Korean BBQ Lemon Cupcakes”. :) It will be a few days before I get all the ingredients though.
