La Poutine Week with IBM Watson
It’s no secret that Canadians love poutine. It’s a comfort food only we seem to understand. We love poutine so much that many city across the country host La Poutine Week, February 1-7.
La Poutine Week celebrates this delicious comfort food with competitions and reinventions of this familiar dish. Throwing their hat into the ring is this year is IBM. Their Cognitive Cooking using Watson Analytics hosted their own event with Watson created recipes. They hosted an event in Toronto and Montreal. We headed down to St. James Cathedral to see what poutine made by Watson would taste like.
