And as we have the flavor analysis of cashew apple juice, which other combinations could you make? What would it give to make a sherry- banana – cashew apple juice cocktail? Any other suggestions based on the Foodpairing tree?

The dynamic tree you can find at www.foodpairing.com/en/free-trial/ Select in the right column of the tool cashew apple juice by scrolling into the category of the drinks.

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.

ROYAL WEDDING CAKE EXPLAINED BY FOODPAIRING

Possibly this could be the recipe of one of the Royal wedding cake. And all the ingredients can be explained by Foodpairing.

Each branch is a category. The closer to the middle the better the match. So chocolate and tamarind mmmmh. Not sure if the brandy is whisky and if the brand is the right one :) Cherries and currants also fit in the tree.

Ingredients for the Fruit Cake:

1 1/2 cups candied cherries
2 cups golden raisins
2 cups dark raisins, preferably Thompson
1 1/4 cups mixed candied citrus peel
2/3 cup chopped crystallized ginger
1/2 cup dried currants
3 tablespoons molasses
3 tablespoons bitter orange marmalade
1 teaspoon tamarind concentrate
finely grated zest of 1 organic orange
finely grated zest of 1 organic lemon
1 heaped tablespoon apple pie spice
6 tablespoons brandy, plus 3 tablespoons to feed the cake
1 cup walnuts
1/3 cup blanched almonds
1 1/4 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, plus more for the pan
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

NEW FOODPAIRING WEBSITE

It is incredible how many of you are using our Foodpairing website. Thank you for the support!! Over the last few years we got more and more questions about adding more (local) ingredients, improving the functionality (search function, dynamic tool), better explanation…
To give an answer to all this questions, we invested in a new website: Foodpairing

Also the visualisations became easier; the closer to the center, the better the match. So matches duck better with cucumber than e.g. pork.

In the free version you can see several brands and Foodpairing recipes: Try it
In the pro horeca version, the trees become dynamic, you can explore more than 500 ingredients, jump from 1 tree to another tree, explore categories (they fold open and give you an overview per category), you can add ingredients to your recipe box (taking into account your selection), you can add recipes, pictures,…Signup pro horeca
Feel free to give suggestions or remarks.
