Ingredient Chart--lists of flavor pairings


Recommended Posts

Okay so somewhere in my past I remember seeing a chart that was simply a ton of boxes (each one listing an ingredient). It had everything, every ingredient one could imagine (from basil to strawberry to duck to chocolate to feta).

Either the chart was organized so that flavors that went together were close in proximity, or there were lines connecting the ingredients.

The basic purpose of the chart was to show what flavors work well with each other.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about/what publication or website had this chart?

I kind of feel like it was "On Food and Cooking" by Harold McGee, but I don't remember.

The authors Page and Dornenburg ( http://www.becomingachef.com/ ) have done a lot of stuff like that in their books, including a book-length treatment in their latest, "The Flavor Bible."
