Seemingly strange flavour combinations ?
I seem to recall another thread relating to this.
Anyway, I understand that what might seem like a strange mix of flavours to me, would seem normal to someone else, particularly if there's a cultural or regional difference.
Either way, I'm usually happy to try anything once.
Yesterday, I caught a programme on TV called "Mexican Food made easy". Of course, there's outlets, both restraunt and takeaway type places that produce Mexican or "TexMex" influenced food (the programme presenter runs about half a dozen places in London doing just that).
Now I don't normally enjoy flavours that have used flowers as part of the flavour/aroma elements in them, but the recipe that caught my attention was "Plums, poached in rose and vanilla".
For reasons I don't quite understand, I'm finding the idea of the combination of the rose/rose water and vanilla with some fruit appealing.
Dunno why, or whether I'll get round to trying this dish......
But do you have any, less than intuitive flavour combinations that taste good and perhpas either a recipe or an example of where that combination might be used ?
here's me home brewing blog
