'Zest' is the name of a student-created smart seasoning kiosk that has the potential to add an immense amount of interest to one's meals.
From rosemary and potatoes to tomato and basil, there are some herb and spice pairings that are absolutely timeless. With Zest, a user is able to place an unseasoned dish onto the machine, which recognizes the food presented and suggests ways to spice it up. Required spices for a recipe will light up on the nearby spice rack, making it easy to see exactly what is needed to enhance a dish's flavor.
The creators of Zest, a team from Brown University, imagine that the smart seasoning station could be installed in food halls, particularly ones for students, where flavorful seasoning is often lacking.
