My Favorite Culinary Combinations

  • Apr 7, 2011
There's a magic that happens when certain ingredients come together. It's almost as if they were created for one another. Here are my faves....
1
Dark Chocolate and Raspberry
The only bitter I would consider beautiful, paired with the sweet-tart berry is a match made in heaven!
2
Olive Oil and Garlic
A high-quality, fruity extra virgin olive oil can only be improved upon with garlic. It's pretty much all I need with angel hair pasta!
3
Butter and Lemon
What would fish be without this marriage? Hey, chicken and veggies are made all the more happy with butter and lemon, too!
4
Green Chile and Cheese
This is a shout-out to my wife's upbringing in New Mexico. Ever had a green chile cheeseburger? If not, you haven't started living. Jump on a plane and go NOW!
5
Tomato and Basil
Marinara. 'Nuff said.

What did you think of this list?

Super combos. Garlic and olive oil is a staple in my house. Another favorite of mine is peanuts (or cashews) and curry. Curried peanut sauce over noodles is a decadent treat! And let's not forget cinnamon and sugar.

Two word for #4 -- chili relleno! Mmmmm, and the rest of the list sounds just as tasty. Awesome list, Jay!

I'm a Southern California guy who loves food almost as much as I love my wife! Almost! I also love to travel. But I think the best way to experience a new place is to try the food. Not the stuff at … more
