I love a weird food combo. I pretend I don’t, when I first come across them. But then the combo stays in my mind until I try it.
This happened to me awhile ago with Billy Law’s Cola Chicken. I saw the recipe on Cook Republic (as per the pic below) and was appalled that someone would be so unhealthy as to use coke in cooking. But then I couldn’t get the idea out of my idea. I tried it and it was AMAZE! Not something to eat regularly though!
Here’s a few other weird combos that have caught my eye recently:
Hotdogs wrapped with bacon and stuffed with peanut butter! This one’s from a historic gastronomist featured on the etsy blog here.
And then on Stone Soup the other day, there were some food combo suggestions from Tim Ferriss. He suggested:
:: cayenne pepper and salt on mango
:: cinnamon and chilli powder on vanilla ice cream
:: soy sauce on vanilla ice cream
:: cinnamon on bacon
:: almond butter on hamburger
So, would you dare try any of these?
