Relationship enhancer: Interactive recipe in kitchen island

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


HCI researches on kitchen have been focusing on creating new devices to facilitate cooking works and eliminate mistakes. However, kitchen is also a place where family and friends create meaning and memories. Therefore, here we develop an interactive recipe in kitchen island that aims to enhance social bonds and pleasure among people. The system utilizes tangible interaction for creative recipe and keeps records of people's favorite foods. Groups of family and friends participated in the study. The results indicate that there existed a cognition gap in people's understanding of each other's food preference. Participants agreed that the interactive recipe increased communication when preparing food for others. In creativity aspect, the numbers of new dish did not increase because of collaboration, but instead people showed more creative dish ideas. On the other hand, individual developed more dish variations but ordinary recipe design.
