I am one of many who discovered a love of cooking over quarantine, but as much as I love trying out new recipes, picking them can feel like a chore. It's easy to fall into the same old routine of pasta, grilled chicken, and fried rice. I wanted to build something that would inspire me to cook dishes from around the world and help me to cut back on waste by using the ingredients already available.
What it does
This extension accepts user input of up to five ingredients. It then randomly selects a nationality and bring the user to a google search result that combines this information
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
This project was essentially a crash course in web development. I learned a lot of basics working with all of these languages and platforms. I also honed my strategies for effectively researching concepts that I'm unfamiliar with!
What's next for Cook the World!
This program is pretty basic, but there are a lot of opportunities for improvement! I would love to let the user input as many ingredients as the user would like instead of capping it at 5. I would also be interested in using AI to optimize the nationality chosen based on the ingredients entered.
