The project aims to help people learn to cook more food from ingredients that they have at their disposal. Any user from children (with adult supervision), teens and adults can use this platform to make a healthy and wholesome meal for themselves.


The aim is to get more people cooking and to reduce food waste by helping users to find a recipe suitable for the ingredients they have. Using the web based service, any edible item from a simple fruit or vegetable can be made into a delicious meal ready to eat.


The project utilises image recognition technology using TensorFlow by having the user point their devices camera to identify ingredients. The system will then identify the items and search through a recipe API for the most suitable recipe to make.


The user can also save recipes they have searched for as the system uses accounts managed by MySQL to store and retrieve users data.


The system is hosted on a Linux based AWS instance and it will be built using Python as the foundation.
