The Best Combination of Two Distinct Flavors

  • b

To me, it's chocolate and hazelnut, AKA gianduja. E.g., Nutella, gelato, etc.

I'd like to know what others think. Savory as well as sweet combos also welcome!

  1. Sweet & Sour as in almost anything that is sweet and sour

    Sweet & Salty as in a pissaladiere with caramelized onions and anchovies and olives.

    Is there a common thread here? I could go on, but I'll leave some for others.

      Roquefort (Maytag Blue an acceptable substitute)
      and fresh figs or the poor mans version feta
      cheese and watermelon

      Pineapple on pizza! The sweet pineapple and salty cheese and sauce are oh so nice together. But hold the ham.

        Throw on some pickled jalapeno slices and you have...oh, wait, that makes three distinct flavors.

          Stilton Cheese with Pecans/Walnuts and Vintage Port

      2. Stinky, aged goat cheese and a big, rustic red.

        1. Raw oysters and Muscadet

          1. Garlic and rosemary as in rubbed on chicken or in focaccia, not necessarily the sweet and savory thing, but they do go together well.

            Homemade apple pie with a nice slice of sharp cheddar cheese

            Sauteed mushrooms seem to go well seasoned with fresh sage.
