I Have Questions for ChatGPT
This conversation about AI and recipe ethics seems so reasonable. Should we worry?
With all the talk in the media about ChatGPT, a generative artificial intelligence (AI) language model, I wondered what this new software would mean for the future of food writing, particularly recipe generation.
I thought it would be fun to interview ChatGPT and ask. I needed a reason to try it! Below, ChatGPT and I had exchanges about:
what kinds of tasks it could do for us
the potential of a machine to replace writers, editors and photographers.
Does ChatGPT think it can replace us as editors and writers? Read on to see the transcript.
Q. Many food writers are recipe developers. I assume you are one too. Please give me a recipe for peanut butter cookies with miso.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup white miso paste
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
Mix in the white miso paste until well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined.
Scoop out 1-2 tablespoons of dough at a time and roll into balls. Place the balls onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between them.
Use a fork to press down on the dough balls, making a criss-cross pattern on the top of each cookie.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Enjoy your unique and flavorful peanut butter cookies with miso!
Q. Where did you get this recipe?
A. I generated this recipe as an AI language model based on common ingredients and techniques used in baking peanut butter cookies and incorporating miso as a unique flavor addition. The specific ingredient amounts and instructions were created by me. While I drew upon my knowledge of cooking and baking, this recipe is not based on a particular source or author.
