Can dark chocolate be combined with ketchup? Foodpairing is a method for identifying which foods go together, based on the principle that some foods can be combined when they share major flavor components. An interactive tree visualization [], in itself the result of matching hundreds of ingredients through a flavor analysis, is meant as a useful aid for cooking chefs and cocktail makers alike to increase their awareness and sparkle their imagination of which ingredients match others from a flavor perspective. The main ingredient is placed in the middle, with different food categories placed in a circle, including meat, herbs, sauces, vegetables, pastry, sea products, fruits, drinks and diary/

An interactive demonstration limited to 100 different ingredients is freely available. The full repository consisting of more than 1,000 products and 250 beverages can only be unlocked through a paid subscription service.

Yes. This is perfect. Much thanks. And much thanks for your excellent site, Andrew.
