Hi and many thanks for reading this question.
I want to create an algorithm that will minimize the total number of ingredients that are in a weekly menu. A menu is made of several recipes, for simplicity let's say 5 recipes. Recipes are randomly selected from a database of many recipes. Each recipe has ingredients that can be identical or different.
- I would like your help to modelize this problem so it can be optimized.
- If you have any idea of what type of proble this is (NP Complex?) that could also help me going in the right direction.
Thanks for your help.
