In this panel discussion, the future of cookbooks will certainly be influenced by AI, as it continues to streamline recipe generation. Platforms like the popular New York Times cooking app integrate AI-driven features for recipe recommendations and meal planning. Perhaps TikTok with its short form cooking content will change the face of cookbooks as people look for visually engaging formats. Will cookbooks be relegated to digital companions in the kitchen? Join us for this stimulating panel.
