In the concept shown by Ikea, for example, just place ingredients on the table to see suggestions on other ingredients to be combined to prepare a recipe appear directly on the surface of the top; the table will integrate directly with recipe books and choosing the time of realization will be able to advise which recipe to follow.
By placing the food directly on the worktop, it will be possible to obtain nutritional values, some recipes to execute and even suggestions on how to clean or prepare specific foods, all directly on the worktop; if you are struggling with a recipe, the table will suggest the proportions and act as a weighing machine to calculate the quantity of ingredients to be used.
