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

      The Pie Queen

      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.

        1. re: Albie

          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.

            1. Sweet salame & and a sharp gorgonzola, or same cheese and scallions

              Sharp cheddar and grapes

              1. Really strong black coffee and warm, iced cinnamon rolls.

                1. re: susan blair

                  Really strong black coffee and a fudgey brownie, even cold!

                2. Medjool dates and gruyere cheese. Oh, yeah.

                  1. Lime Juice and Cilantro. I think the two flavors heterodyne off each other.

                    (Of course you add some onions and jalapenos and it gets better exponentially...)

                    1. Swiss cheese and avocado...

                      I'm going home now for din-din.

                      1. Great Gouda with fresh, ripe pear.

                        1. Big slab of perfectly seared foie gras and a giant glass of properly chilled Chateaux d'Yquiem... Heaven.

                          on the other end of the spectrum...

                          Fresh, hot, just baked Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Donut and a cup of perfectly brewed French Roast coffee... awesome... btw, not trying to start a Krispy Kreme discussion...:)

                            Followed by a nice Port and a serving of Stilton.

                          2. Vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.
                            Pastrami & chopped liver between rye bread.
                            Bourbon & 7-Up.
                            Bacon and scrambled eggs.
                            Lox and cream cheese.

                            There is no end to the best combination of two distinct flavors, it varies with the day, the weather, the mood, what ever.

                            1. A cold kosher dill pickle and a hot thin slice of cheese pizza. A flavor, texture, temperature and ethnic culinary fusion....

                              1. Sauerkraut and some form of salty, cured pork.

                                1. Chocolate and Banana are an unbeatable combination. I think Mango and lime are a born duo as well.

                                    In that same vein, chocolate and orange, especially in its purest essence, chocolate-covered orange peel.

                                      The old 7-Up candy bar, which was essentially seven different chocolates bound into a single piece, had one chunk that was an orange jelly. I always ate the parts one by one and saved that one for "dessert". Citrus and chocolate are the sweet world's equivalent to pork and sauerkraut, I think - pleasing in every way. When my nephews were kids and living in Italy they were a pair of insufferable brats, but the fact that they were both fanatics about having lemon and chocolate gelato on the same cone gave me hope for their souls. They have since become very fine men...

                                        Chile and lime, especially on mango (okay, I know that is three distinct flavors, but delicious)

                                        also on jicama

                                        chocolate and citrus (orange or grapefruit)

                                        strawberries and balsamic

                                          Yes! Chocolate and orange. Combined in one ice cream flavor, preferably . . .

                                          1. re: Alexandra Halsey

                                            Chocolate and orange is definitely high on my list of combos too, especially in the form of the mandarin chocolate ice cream at Toscanini's in Cambridge Mass.

                                            1. re: Alexandra Halsey

                                              Yes, chocolate & orange rules. Have you tried Ben & Jerry's Pulp Addiction? I haven't seen it in a few months; I hope they haven't stopped making it.

                                                Man, I haven't seen that for ages. I was so happy to see it, especially since I remember that back in the '80s, B&J had a chocolate orange ice cream in their Scoop Shops for a brief moment.

                                                I posted below about this, but it's really one of my favorite "chocolate and" combinations. A lot of people I talk to, however, just shudder when I even mention it.

                                                1. re: Stephanie L.

                                                  Maybe Pulp Addiction is hard to find, but earlier today I was lucky enough to encounter orange ice cream as a daily special flavor at Custard Beach in Grand Central Terminal. Had a scoop with hot fudge!

                                                2. re: Cloudy

                                                  I just checked their current flavour list, and Pulp Addiction is not listed. However, they did have a new flavour "Orange and Cream" which is orange sorbet swirled into vanilla ice cream - sounds like a Creamsicle in a cup!

                                                  1. re: FrankDrakman

                                                    If you like Creamsicles or an Orange Julius and have an ice cream maker, I enthusiastically endorse the following (paraphrased) recipe for Orange Julius Sherbet from "The Ultimate Frozen Dessert Book" by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough. I've loved every recipe I've made from this book.

                                                            Miracle Whip is a sickly sweet, sugar laden abomination of all that is good with mayonnaise. Leave it to Kraft to take a delicious substance, and make it sweet. Their salad dressings are also disgusting, sugary garbage as well.

                                                              miracle whip is not mayo. it is an entity unto itself. sui generis.

                                                              actually, it's good with crunchy cubes of iceberg and juicy chunks of summer tomato. s&p. maybe a dash of white wine vinegar and a hit of oregano. done.

                                                        My favorite. Haven't made it yet with homemade mayo but will try it this summer when the farmers market opens up. The tomatoes (even plum) have no taste right now.

But around here good bacon is easier to find than good sausage. As a matter of fact i have'nt had good sausage since I lived down south. I like Carl Ehmer's low sodium/nitrate bacon. Very nice, slightly smoky, and meaty. One of the best bacons on the market. Cook medium, not too soft but not crisp, over very low heat. Cook up some easy over eggs, some vanilla french toast (just add a few drops of vanilla to the egg/milk mix), and add butter, fresh pepper and good maple syrup and you have the best breakfast going. So good I only have it every other week to keep the joy factor high.

My favorite is Turks in West Haven, CT (just outside of New Haven). Anytime anyone in my family is within 200 miles we’ll drive down. Why does the New Haven area have such great food? New York is so close to New England, so why is it so hard to find good fried clams there?

                                                                                        Below are fried clam joints discussed by chowhounds, followed by the links. Restaurants are more or less in link order. Essex Seafood seems to beat out the better know Clam Box. Big Raves about Bob’s Clam Hut, Lennys, Kream n Kone, Dubee’s and Captain Frosty’s.

                                                                                        There are mentions in the links below to mail order fried clams at the Ipswich Shellfish Company, but they didn't work, so I’m reposting below (click on Fresh Catch). Have not tried them, and, since I don’t really cook, it’s unlikely I’d order them. However, next time I’m anywhere near LA I plan to try Sid’s.

                                                                                          Your list includes a "cubby's" in Brewster, MA.

                                                                                          That's a mis-spelling, but apparently any attempt to spell the name of this place results in mis-spelling. The sign actually reads "COBIES" with no apostrophe -- rhymes with, uh, "snow bees."

                                                                                          The gentleman in charge is popularly called "Cobie", so an apostrophe would seem to be in order -- unless there is in fact another Cobie in the vicinity. The search continues.

                                                                                          Fried clams are best north of Boston, but Arnold's in Wellfleet is pretty good. Kelly's Roast Beef on Revere Beach used to serve excellent clams. Still?

                                                                                          I would POINTEDLY fail to include Mojo's of Provincetown on my own list.

                                                                                          Incidentally, Cobies' [sp.?] char-grilled chicken breasts plus their sweet red pepper relish might be my favorite combination of two distinct flavors.

                                                                                          I also recommend the flavor combination of pan-fried scallops and "1000-year-old eggs." To the best of my knowledge, you can't get those at Cobies.

                                                                                          1. re: clams247

                                                                                            1. re: galleygirl

                                                                                              Also why, once you dig them up, do they go bad in about two weeks unrefrigerated and 4 weeks refrigerated? I mean it makes no sense, they were already buried for more than three months.

                                                                                          2. re: Stanley Stephen

Fondly remembered Laura Secord's French mints, mint/marshmallow chocolates, and dark chocolate discs with mint crunch (do they still make those)? Girl Scout Thin Mints. Not so successful, although acceptable: York Peppermint Patties (ratio of mint:choc too high, also not fond of fondant fillings).

Remember the ad campaign that likened them to getting silver medals? :) Here's a little twisted teenager humor for you. Do you recall the York Peppermint Patty ice cream sticks? They were kind of a cylindrical shape and were dipped in chocolate. We thought we were so clever, we called them "Peppermint Patricks." HA HA HA. A better mint to chocolate ratio are those After Eight dinner mints. Or better still, 'cause the minty filling is so creamy, Fazermints. I haven't seen them in a long time, but they were stellar.

This is more a fond memory than any guarantee that my 8 year old palate was onto something—but how I loved to go to Baskin-Robbins and get a two-scoop cup with French Vanilla and Daiquiri Ice. I thought it the height of sophisticated combos.

                                                                                                                        1. re: kattyeyes

But it has to be a good, strong vanilla, it can't be virtual ice milk. I just never did like chocolate ice cream much, even as a kid. Odd, I know.

I love chocolate and peanut butter as a candy, but as ice cream, they must be hanging out in the vanilla. As much as I love chocolate, I really don't care for chocolate ice cream or chocolate milkshakes...but chocolate and peanut butter TOPPING over VANILLA, well, that's just the way it should be. Not odd at all.

                                                                                                                            So I might as well continue with something I had never heard of seven years ago: Wensleydale cheese with cranberries. It comes with blueberries and apricots too, but the cranberry variety is the best. It's a regular treat at our house over the holidays.

                                                                                                                                      Trader Joes and Costco both carry fruity cheeses, if you have either in your area. TJ's Wensleydale with Cranberries is a holiday staple at our house.

                                                                                                                                    2. Prosciutto and cantaloupe!

                                                                                                                                      Not much of a cantaloupe fan, on its own.

                                                                                                                                      But wrap a wedge in that piggy/salty goodness and WOW!
