Flavor pairings

(article, Culinate staff)

Feeling burned out by the holidays, inspiration-wise? Never fear; there are blogs and websites and books out there to help. First up is a simple alphabetical list of ingredients, mostly fruit, from the wellness blog Bliss Returned; each item comes with a few other ingredients that go well with it, such as walnuts with pears or blueberries with cardamom. Then there's a foodie website titled Foodpairing, featuring wheel-like diagrams of ingredients surrounded by complementary flavors. Finally, there's [%amazonProductLink asin=1596916044 "The Flavor Thesaurus"], a book (and accompanying website) that not only suggests combos but explains why some work — and some don't.
