Food Pairing

by on January 11, 2010

There has been a severe dearth of posts in the past couple of months. I know. I’m sorry. My goal is one per week from now on.

If you are not familiar with the food pairing website, it is a resource for the culinarily inclined that uses databases on flavor compounds to suggest pairings and replacements for food items. (They also have added some tasty beverages, like brandy.) You can subscribe to their recently added items RSS feed here.

It was fascinating to look at the recent addition Jerusalem Artichoke. It has very few pairings (Not a single mention of potatoes of any sort or water chestnut), but what is fascinating is that the suggested flavor replacements (here) are primarily herbs and spices.  What does this mean for composing dishes with Jerusalem Artichokes? Maybe a soup made with a scented broth? or cryovac infusion? or an herb salad?
