FUTURE OF FOOD
Soon, you won’t just use your kitchen – you’ll chat to it. Welcome to the fantastical innovations that will become part of your food life in 2019 and beyond
Give your kitchen a smart makeover with this high-tech kit
The kitchen, as you know it, is a museum piece. It may not feel like it. You may be happy there. But in the next few years, the domestic kitchen is going to – almost literally – come alive with possibility. A new wave of intelligent, web-connected appliances will bring to an end the very notion of toiling at a hot stove. Instead, as the interoperability of appliances is smoothed out, and those appliances begin to connect seamlessly to Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant, your kitchen will take on the feel of a high-tech command centre. One where, simply by talking to your appliances, you will be able to shop, set them cooking unaided, watch guided recipe tutorials and, generally, be the best cook you can be. At the forefront of this revolution is BBC Good Food, with our archive of 11,000 recipes now available through Samsung’s connected fridges and Amazon’s Alexa devices. With the right technology, you can connect your favourite Good Food recipes to your fridge, or search and follow each one, all by voice. Hannah Williams, BBC Good Food’s head of digital content, says, ‘The routines and homes of the Good Food audience are changing, but the desire for trusted, tasty recipes is not. With every innovation, we make our content more useful and relevant. It’s exciting to help people cook great-tasting food, whether they’re talking to their fridge or flicking through the magazine.’ Everything from your breadmaker to your pans will monitor temperature and humidity to ensure meals turn out perfectly. Again. And again. And again. In some cases, that future is already here. By 2022, it definitely will be. Welcome to the kitchen of tomorrow. Life may never be the same again.
