I'd like to try strawberry curry, but a chicken-flavoured cocktail sounds revolting. These are just two of the new recipes dreamed up by Watson, an IBM supercomputer.

Watson is helping people get creative with flavours using a new app. Give it a couple of ingredients and it will create a recipe based on its huge databases of foods, existing recipes and flavours.

I like the idea of trying weird food combinations so I'll definitely be giving it a go.
