Was originally planning on doing a Richmond road trip + Thanksgiving post....but got waaay too busy....so will put that off for a couple of days....but today i saw something really neat and couldn't resist a short post.
Ever open your fridge and go "Hmmm...I have some *insert random ingredient here* what should I do with it?"
Well, have no fear....a team of Belgian scientists working hand in hand with some chefs have harnessed the power of matching flavors and charted it at http://www.foodpairing.be/.
The website is easy to use. You can either ask "What goes well with *random ingredient* or What can replace *ingredient*?
I haven't had a chance to try any of the pairings on the website...I did do a search for what pairs well with boiled eggs and got guava as one of the options...I'm curious if that will taste any good....maybe I"ll try it out soon.
For those adventurous/experimental cooks out there....this could be an interesting tool for mixing and matching ingredients......I'd love to hear about it if you try any of the pairings!
Have fun and stay consumed!
