12 Breakfasts Robots Can't Make (Yet)

August 27, 2015

On Monday the MIT Technology Review reported that a robot in Germany called PR2 is parsing WikiHow articles to learn how to make pancakes and pizza. It may be nice, on a drowsy Thursday morning, to imagine waking up to short stack made by Robo. But come Sunday, when the newspaper is heavy and the stone fruit is ripe, you're going to want to make those pancakes yourself. 

Here are 11 breakfasts from morning person Emily Vikre that you'll want to make yourself and linger over. Make them before autumn comes into full swing and you wish you had a robot to do it for you.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.
