chocolate syrup doesnt work on a sandwich....
Not an odd cobination, but an odd looking food that was new to me: Romanesco Broccoli (Which is actualyl a form of cauliflower, and has a partial fractal growth pattern...)
You need to get down to the market more, that was one of the first places I ever encountered fractals. I can probably even blame my choice to do F. Maths A-level at least partly on cauliflower
It's probably been said before, but cheddar and mayonnaise works amazingly well despite sounding absolutely disgusting. You have to just ignore your culinary intuition and take the plunge.
In France they do a Mustard Mayonase that goes amazing with cheese...
Dam you im hungry now.
Cheddar and Mustard is pure win as well.
As for the market:
I shop a LOT (for food). Unfortunately we have not a single "market" per se here, and the supermarkets all only get interesting fruit/veg about once a century...
Have you tried one of these yet Jaybles?
I'm currently on a cutting cycle so can't have one but they're unmachable on nomnomness
Once at a friend's Mexican themed birthday party I complained that the birthday cake wasn't Mexican enough...
Having had a few beers, I decided "Mexicanised" my slice in the following manner:
- Separate the two layers of sponge cake, leaving jam, cream and icing intact.
- Add nachos, tomato salsa, jalepenos, grated cheese, chilli con carne (and seasoned with some cracked black pepper).
- Sandwich the two sponge layers back together back together.
- Washed down with a shot of tequila.
Somehow, I managed to eat it and keep it down.
Needless to say it wasn't a culinary experience i'd repeat when sober...
pepperoni sticks (hot) & ice cream sandwiches
I grew up with peanut butter & Rogers Golden Syrup - still can't figure out why some people thinks it's an odd combo.
Licorice spice tea (let it steep at least 10 minutes because the flavour changes) with instant hot chocolate powder - If you like both licorice and chocolate you Have to try this.
Apparently, dark chocolate sprinkled into chilli con carne is nice.... but I'm not brave enough to try it myself
No doubt you've all been waiting with baited breath to hear how I got on with my Baked Beans & Peanut Butter trials. So here we go:
Naturally, I felt obliged to conduct rigorous analysis during the trials in order to maximise credibility in my conclusions. The thorough questionnaire that I don't mind others adopting follows:
For those wanting to repeat my experiments, you should know that I used the following ingredients: &
i) Did it look appetising?
Answer: Not really. The sauce turned a pale colour that most reminded me of the sauce on the most disgusting thing I can ever remember eating (a pizza in a Swedish bar).
ii) Did it make me sick?
Answer: No. Not yet anyway, and I've finished eating about 30mins ago.
iii) Would my dog eat it?
iv) Would I eat it again if I had to?
v) Would I eat it again if I didn't have to?
Answer: Not especially.
I have to say I was a little disappointed with how it turned out. After my mini cold trial the other night I was quite optimistic about the combination, but when throughly mixed in with the beans with the support of heat the blend became a little sickly. Perhaps I added too much peanut butter, I was quite generous with it, more so than I had been the other night.
It is worth noting that the addition of some didn't hurt.
Overall I can not recommend this particular combination over my current leading baked bean mixture, which involves frying some onions in the pan before adding the baked beans, which is superb.
if done right you don't really notice its there, the chilli[es]/chocolate combo does work, providing it's decent dark chocolate... If you do it with something like Dairy Milk [or worse... Hershey's] you deserve to be beaten to death with a large fry-pan...
yeah. Chili and dark chocolate works a treat.
Chili con Carne and chocolate works as well. Takes a bit of the bite out of it (which can be good or bad, dependant on who you ask), and adds some complexity to the flavour, provided it's done right.
Chili con Carne should ALWAYS be made with a good shot or two of bourbon, though. That's more important than the dark chocolate, as it's more "tastable".
peanut butter and homemade strawberry jam on pita bread. yummmy
+rep, I like the format and the effort. Now do a review of marmite and nutella! (I don't dare try it myself.)
Cheese+mayo sammies = NOMNOM
Also try my '3 cheeses' toasted sandwiches
You need one of those sandwich makers that seal the edges.
Use cheddar, a sweet swiss cheese, and a creamy mozarella.
Toast, enjoy. Add bacon for extra noms.
I have taken it to cheddar, edam, parmesan, mozarella, swiss, havarti. epic.
For an awesome dessert, drizzle balsamic vinegar over vanilla ice cream. I kid you not.
Also, candied Bacon. Thank you epicmealtime!
Would like to report that Eggo Waffles and Minestrone soup do not mix.
PB&J Banana Burritos
You can thank me later.
I love Birdseye potato waffles and peanut butter.
Also, Lint do a nice chocolate with chilli and a chocolate with salt. mmmmmm
You're going to create some kind of lactose singularity and kill us all.
Also, one I nearly forgot about: prawns and olives on a pizza. Toppings that rarely get used (which is shameful) and almost never ever get put together (which is tragic), they really work (assuming you actually like both in themselves, of course).
Also, I rediscovered Bombay Mix, can anyone think of cool things to do with it mixture/cookery wise?
