Foodpairing(R) is not only applied in top restaurants, our creativity tool can also be used to create new recipes for e.g. hotdog.
We have members applying Foodpairing(R) in all sorts of places. In Belgium we have e.g. places that sell french fries (called ‘frietkot’) that apply Foodpairing(R) to increase the potato experience. For a fair we created new Foodpairing(R) combinations based on classic hamburgers and hotdog.
As an example we made a variation on a hotdog, starting from chicken sausage.
If you check the Foodpairing(R) tree of chicken, you can find combinations like pumpkin, apple,…
