I found a link on “En chokomans bekendelser” to an extremely interesting Belgian site on food pairing.

I must admit I don’t understand fully how they made it. What they write is this: “By comparing the flavour of each food product eg strawberry with the rest of the food and their flavours, new combinations like strawberry with peas can be made. The way to use is, is just to select a food product like strawberries. You will get a plot where you have strawberry in the middle surrounded by other food products. Take one of those other food products and try to make a new recipe by combining those two. The more flavours food products have in common the shorter the distance between the food products.”

It’ll be fun to test some of the wackier pairings they suggest.
