I’m a foodie for sure. I’m open to new things, but when I read about some of these suggested food combinations I shuttered. I get it, you want to activate different parts of your palate in order to get a real culinary experience. However, some of these suggestions really had me scratching my head. I hope you're ready...because this is about to get weird.
Apparently, culinary experts are encouraging us to try new food combos to “get the most out of our food experience”. Here are some of the recent wacky suggestions that I saw. Would you try these?
Peanut Butter and Raw Onion
This combo is supposed to work because it takes a sharp flavor to cut through something as creamy and rich and peanut butter. Raw gives a crunch and extends the flavor profile. I just don’t get it!
Olive Oil and Ice Cream
Now this one, I’ve tried. The next time you get some ice cream or frozen yogurt try topping it with extra virgin olive oil and some finely milled salt. It’s epic. Somehow it makes the cream richer and the salt activates another part of your tastebuds. I would only recommend that with vanilla or chocolate though.
Red Wine and Coke
What the what? They do this in Spain but I simply cannot endorse it. It is a cheap drink and it is supposed to be “refreshing” but I’m not havin’ it.
This one is just not OK.
Nutella and Chicken
Now I’m a Nutella queen for sure, I’ll put it on almost anything but chicken?!?! They say it is a chocolate hazelnut marinade. It is a thing, in fact, people eat Nutella-marinated chicken kebabs all the time. They add spices to cut through the sweetness but I’m still a nope. How about you?
