Did you know that tomato and green tea pair well?
Food pairing as a molecular analysis of similarities is a new gastronomic field of research that reveals unexpected culinary combinations. According to this theory tasty combinations contain similar flavor components. Ingredients on a pizza with tomatoes, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, for example, pair well due to the 4-methylpentanoic acid they have in common. The online platform “Foodpairing” was developed against this background as a source of inspiration allowing chefs, bartenders and the food industry to create new dishes or drinks.
