Abstract: 
The Earl system works in the domain of sandwich recipes. We show how Earl uses two sources of knowledge —ingredients knowledge that is extracted from a gastronomy web site, and a case base of sandwich recipes— to propose substitutes for ingredients in sandwich recipes. In particular, we describe four substitution methods: human-authored substitutions, taxonomically-driven substitutions, lexically-driven substitutions, and frequent item set substitutions. A preliminary experiment with human participants shows that a system that uses the last of these methods is competitive with one that uses the other three methods in combination.
