STRAWBERRY-BLACK PEPPER-OLIVE OIL-OLIVES…

Heston Blumenthal about strawberry combinations (edition  of “In search of perfection: Trifle” of a few years ago) Thaught about this one seeing a trailer on Belgian television.

Of course all easy to explain by using Foodpairing (what did you expect :)): strawberry-black pepper; strawberry-olive oil; strawberry-black olive; strawberry-sherry;…. In the same Foodpairing tree, you see the combination of lobster, pea, strawberry (a combination made by Sang-Hoon Degeimbre of L’air du temps)

RUM – APPLE – CLOVE – LEMON or BELL PEPPER

While reading the website of Starchefs, I came across some Rum cocktails easy to explain by Foodpairing;
- Rum, apple, clove and lemon (Mixologist and Co-owner Johnny Santiago of Jo’s – New York, NY)

- Rum, bell pepper, limonade (Mixologist Eben Freeman of Tailor – New York, NY)

Looking to the Foodpairing tree of Havana Rum you see all these combinations popping up.

Also classical combinations with Havana Club 7 like the Golden Apple.

WHAT COMBINES WITH A SALTY PIMP?

I stumbled upon this icecream truck: Big gay ice cream truck by scrolling through the new Food inspiration. I don’t know what their quality of icecream is, but the combinations they make are quite fun. And they have all sorts of goodies that you can add. So what can be combined with their salty pimp, a vanilla icecream with dulce de leche, chocolate and salt?

Well, let’s have a look at the Foodpairing of dulce de leche : combines with Rambutan (exotic fruit), but also cayenne pepper (one of their goodies). Coffee, tea, soy paste?

HAYDEN LAMBERT ON FOODPAIRING AND WINNING COMPETITIONS

This was a quote we got from Hayden Lambert on Foodpairing :

Bernard, I love the site and I know the boys here at the merchant hotel use it often in conjunction with the flavour bible. It allows me to combine flavours that as a bartender I had no idea would work well together!
Here is a drink I created and helped me win the 42below cocktail world cup london final!”
Catch 42 #2
50mls 42Below pure vodka
30mls Clear Tomato juice (plum tomato’s)
17.5mls Clear Passion fruit puree
15mls clear lime juice
10mls Monin sugar syrup
1small pinch of salt
Cherry tomato garnish
Vodka links to passion fruit and tomato to passion fruit. For Bloody Mary the spices make the link. Go to Foodpairing trees to see the dynamic Foodpairing tree of Grey Goose Vodka.

WHY NEGRONI FITS FOIE GRAS ROASTED

Starchefs made a post on Cocktails pairings at Clyde Common in Portland.

The reflection we always have is to check if this combination can also be detected by Foodpairing.com. To check which cocktails would fit baked foie gras, we unfolded the category of the drinks (by clicking on the (+) of the branch). These are some of the suggestions you get (only drinks selected)

And indeed gin, vermouth are mentioned as pairings, but it appears Black tea together with Shochu or Bourbon whiskey could also be an interesting combination.
