Flavour profiles

2 posts in this topic

Heston,

As a follow-up to my question under "Gourmet", what other similar flavour profiles have worked with flavours that normally don't go together?

Ok Lizziee, here is a list of a few of them,

Strawberry and coriander

Snails and Beetroot (the flavour molecule that contributes to the earthiness in each of these is the same. It also exists in spinach and baby corn)

Chocolate and pink peppercorn

Carrot and violet (ionone is the main pairing molecule here)

Carrot and coriander

Mango and violet

Pineapple and blue cheese (careful as the cheese needs a certain ketone level)

Caraway and lavender are surprisingly interchangeable

Cauliflower (caramelised) and cocoa

Liver and Jasmine (similar sulphur compounds

Cooked cheese (like parmesan and gruyere) and honey (with a slightly chestnut character)

Banana and parsley

Harissa (chilli paste) and dried apricot

I hope that this give you a "taster"
