TURBOT-VIOLET-APRICOT-BUTTER OR WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT L’AIR DU TEMPS

As some of you know, one of the first chefs we started to cooperate with was Sang-Hoon Degeimbre of L’air du temps. He is one of those chefs who really understands the concept of Foodpairing and one of the few chefs who succeeds to surprise me time after time.
I was really blown away by some of the new dishes he proposed last Saterday.
One of them was a juicy turbot with violet

to be paired with a butter-apricot combination.

Absolutely fantastic!
I added also the Foodpairing tree of apricot, so you can see how they are linked together

COINTREAU AND REMY MARTIN ADDED TO FOODPAIRING.COM

Bartenders request us more and more to add specific brands of drinks on Foodpairing.com. As flavor profiles between e.g. different gins change a lot, it is quite important to make a Foodpairing cocktail with the correct drink.
We are happy to see that distillers who care about the flavor of their drinks and really want to support bartenders request more and more Foodpairing analysis.
The newest addition to the database are Cointreau and Rémy Martin cognac.

As the Foodpairing website is also available in French, for the variation I added here a French version of the Cointreau Foodpairing tree explaining one of the pairings they made on their website; the Dita van Teesen cocktail: Cointreau + orange-ginger-violet-chocolate-cake (cocktail and barfood in 1).
