Discover New Food Pairings

If you're looking for some cooking inspiration, then be sure to check out the new Food Pairing website. Designed by the folks at Food for Design, the site creates food pairing trees generated by the flavor components of each ingredient. The shorter the distance between the two food products, the more flavors the food have in common. Right now, there are 42 ingredients to begin with — although there will be 250 when it's completed — and they range from blue cheese, to oysters, to blueberries.

The folks at Food for Design hope that you use these trees to come up with new food pairings. For example, they've suggested strawberries and peas. You may not think of these two as complementary but think about a summer salad with peas, mint and strawberry, delish! So go ahead and give it a try and see what combinations you come up with.
