Meet Botatouille: Tasty's New AI-Powered Sous Chef!

Discover new recipes with the help of Tasty's AI-powered culinary companion!

Introducing Botatouille, Tasty’s new AI-powered chefbot, designed to chat with you to help solve all of your kitchen conundrums! Think of Botatouille as your digital sous-chef, built within the Tasty app to help you discover new recipes, improve your skills, plan new menus and tackle all of your cooking adventures from your mobile device.


Botatouille combines the power of BuzzFeed’s in-house Machine Learning systems, leveraging Tasty’s extensive library of recipes and data, with OpenAI’s ChatGPT API technology. This collaboration ensures that most of Botatouille’s recipe recommendations have been carefully vetted by our Tasty Team. Our goal is to make AI-powered culinary tools accessible and enjoyable for everyone!

We're launching Botatouille in beta because we want your feedback! This AI culinary companion will continuously learn and improve based on your questions and suggestions. We encourage you to share any problems you encounter or provide suggestions to help us enhance your experience. Please leave your feedback here.

Right now, Botatouille is great at answering ingredient-based questions like “I have chicken and tomatoes in my fridge, what’s a comforting recipe I can make for dinner?” Ask Botatouille to plan menus using questions like “what should I serve for my daughter’s birthday?” Botatouille can also answer technique questions such as “what’s the best way to cook an egg?”

See Botatouille in action!

Botatouille is built to answer food and recipe questions, if you ask something off topic, the conversation will be redirected. And of course, Botatouille cannot offer medical advice or dietary recommendations, please consult your doctor for those. 

Botatouille is available on iOS devices. Android coming soon. Download the app today!
