Project description

The necessity to choose meals every day can make the process of cooking a bit stressful and tiring. Our cookbook can pick a random meal out of 100 different recipes separated in 5 different modes (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Desserts, Snacks) for you what makes choosing the meal more exciting and less tedious. Be ready to spin a lucky wheel to start the randomisation process. The book will randomise the number of the page of the recipe but be prepared for some intellectual stimulation! All pages are encoded and waiting for you to decipher them. Moreover, the book can randomize the mode, as well. No need to worry about uncertainty! Still, the book doesn't limit you, the mode can be chosen not only randomly, but also by the user. Randomly drawing the meal brings excitement to the process of cooking or meal planning. You can observe the playfulness on a few levels : aesthetic and intellectual stimulation.
