Two papers in the Arxiv caught my eye recently, (I have time to keep up on papers again!) both about networks and cooking. Both came out around Thanksgiving, too, but maybe that is just a coincidence.
Chun-Yuen Teng, Yu-Ru Lin, Lada A. Adamic, Recipe recommendation using ingredient networks
Yong-Yeol Ahn, Sebastian E. Ahnert, James P. Bagrow, Albert-László Barabási, Flavor network and the principles of food pairing
