Use ChatGPT for Cooking Tips and Tricks

ChatGPT can provide you with helpful tips and tricks to perfect your cooking craft. I had previously fried eggplant and it came out mushier than I had liked, so I asked the chatbot for assistance using this prompt:

"Please give me some tips and tricks for frying eggplant."

And this is what I got:

Use ChatGPT for Kitchen Conversions

Another way to use ChatGPT is to ask it to help you convert metric measurements to a different serving size. For example, you can ask ChatGPT:

  • "How many millimeters are in a cup?"

  • "How many kilograms make up one pound?"

    ChatGPT is great at providing accurate conversions that you'll need to cook tasty meals.

Use ChatGPT for Meal Planning and Prep

If you're simply short on time and want to be more organized with your cooking, ChatGPT can even help you with planning and prepping meals for the week. You can ask:

  • "Create a week-long meal plan for two people with one whole chicken breast as the base ingredient."

  • "What simple healthy ingredients can I pack as a snack for the week?"

Use ChatGPT to Avoid Food Waste

Lastly, if you bought a bundle of food but only ended up needing a little, ChatGPT can help you to create a recipe to avoid wasting excess food.

For example, those overripe bananas on your counter on the brink of complete mush can be added to a great dish with the help of generative AI.
