Beer and oyster Foodpairing

To know which food pairs well with beer, we continuously analyze the flavors of beer like this Leffe Royale.
Leffe Royale is a top fermented Belgian Abbey Ale, intense and complex. From the first sip, the palate is tickled with notes of clove and vanilla. Secondly, the fresh aromas of banana hatch in the mouth. Finally, subtle notions of geranium and citrus arise,  resulting in a finely balanced, fresh and sweet finale. Based on the flavor profile following combinations can be made; coconut, rum, tomato, litchi, cucumber… (more combinations see Foodpairing tree)
We selected oyster, rose, lychee, coconut

Recipe: Oyster – coconut – lychee – rose

4 oysters

2 lychee

100 g coconut puree

1 ts lemon juice

1 g guar gum

Open the oysters. Loosen them. Clean the shell and, if necessary the oyster also.

AVOCADO-TEQUILA-STRAWBERRY-COCONUT FOODPAIRING AT MONASTRELL

About a month ago we participated together with the people from Monastrell in a Foodpairing Cocktail & Foodpairing dinner.
Chef Maria José San Roman presented food combinations together with cocktails by bartender Gegam Kazarian.

One of the spectacular Foodpairing combinations was this dessert with strawberry and coconut linked with a avocado-tequila-lime juice-ginger-basil cocktail.
The tequila in the cocktail is a special one Excellia, Tequila aged in Cognac barrels. We didn’t analyze yet this particular tequila, but from the Foodpairing tree you can see tequila and strawberry do combine.

ROOIBOS FOODPAIRING

The flavor of Rooibos tea makes one of my memories of South-Africa. The flavor contains floral and nutty notes, making a link to e.g. rooibos-coconut or rooibos-raspberry. Find other combinations with Rooibos in this Foodpairing tree (copy the embed to integrate in your website)
