WHAT EXACTLY IS FOODPAIRING?
Foodpairing is a method for identifying which foods go well together. The method is based on the principle that foods combine well with one another when they share major flavour components. Our sense of smell is responsable for 80% of our taste experience, making flavour a key driver for the creation of food combinations.
WHAT IS A FOODPAIRING TREE AND HOW CAN I USE IT?
Once the flavour components of a particular food have been analyzed, they are compared to a database of several hundreds other food & beverages products.. Products which have flavour components in common with the original ingredient are retained. The results are then graphically presented on a Foodpairing tree. The chosen food is placed at the center of the tree and surrounded by posible combinations. The closer to the center, the better the match.
Foodpairing’s team is composed of chefs, food scientists and computational mathematicians who have created breakthrough algorithms. They operate one of the world’s largest ingredient and flavor databases and a series of unique algorithms capable of calculating combinations and fully novel recipes.
