PISTACHIO FOODPAIRING: IRANIAN COMBINATIONS

The Iranian movie ‘A Separation’ won last night the Oscar nomination for foreign movie.
To celebrate this victory (and being good losers – the Belgian nominee Bullhead didn’t win) we added the Foodpairing tree of Pistachio nuts (Iran being the largest exporter).

Click on the Foodpairing tree to see more combinations and find classic Iranian combinations like Jewelled Persian Rice (almond-pistachio-saffron-pomegranate-coriander-rice-sultana-olive oil) 

or Bastani ice-cream (pistachio-saffron-cream-rose water)

POMEGRANATE JUICE PAIRINGS

Based on the Flavor and Foodpairing analysis of pomegranate juice, Peter Coucquyt prepared a dish;
Mackerel escabeche-walnut-brussels sprouts-pomegranate.

Looking to the Foodpairing tree of pomegranate juice, what could a bartender do with it?

 A bartender could come up with a Pomegranate juice-Cointreau-Tequila combination.When googling this combination, it appears to be one of the favorite pairing of Oprah (link to site for recipe)
