New Flavours

So it’s been many months since I did anything with this site, which is a shame but I am hoping to get back into it now. I have a fair few ideas up my sleeve and a few recipes to share with you. I have added more flavours to the mix which include; Whisky/ Bourbon, Haggis, Artichoke, Oats, Radish, Chickpea, Barley, Lentil, Pistachio, Cranberry, Passionfruit, Pomegranate, Scallops, cottage cheese, Mascapone, Ricotta, smoked cheese and Pumkin. Are there any flavours you would like to see me cook with?

I have a couple of recipes I have already tried and just need to perfect before sharing with you, the pairings are Chicken and Carrot, then on the sweeter side Pear and Honey. I will hopefully get these to you as soon as I can.


Flavour Pairings

My boyfriend got me a book on flavour pairings for my christmas. It’s basically a book that has taken 100 flavours and said which of them go well together. Well I want to take it one step farther. I am using my own set of flavours and  going to try them all together and find and make up recipes for those flavours. Some might be interetsing especially since I am doing sweet and savoury. Garlic and chocolate is going to be particularly interesting. But I do have an idea on how to make that work, you will just have to wait and see what I come up with. Even if the dish is a failure I will share it and let you know never to try those flavours together. Some pairings might get lucky and have multiple dishes in different styles. But lets get down to what flavours I am using. I will not be doing the dishes in any order other than what ever comes to my mind.
