Random or unusual food combinations...

Post by Jangloid Mark » Sat Jul 25, 2009 15:05

A thread for...well...random food combinations...what goes with what....things that you wouldn't expect to go together but do, you know...that sort of thing....

I'm getting an itching for scampi, as I do from time to time...
The only question...what to go with it. I'm not really a lover of chips...and scampi + salad wouldn't really fill me up....

I'm a bit stuck really....
One thought did occur to me...get some korma sauce from my local indian takeaway (they do just the sauce for £1.20!!!), boil up some rice, and have a scampi korma (purely by association, I couldn't imagine a hot scampi curry as much as I love them usually)...not sure whether that would work though....

Any scampi thoughts welcome...as are any other food combos that you may want to post...

When I said that I have only ever eaten Birdseye Potato Waffles with butter and jam, most of my friends seemed to think that was really odd. I disagree.

Avocado scrambled eggs are surprisingly delicious.

Black pudding and fried bananas. I know that sounds weird but I was actually served this in an African restaurant in Bergerac and it was a mightily good combination. I mean they were smaller French Boudin Noir, but still black pudding really. They also served me the hottest chicken curry I ever ate, and one of the tastiest too.

That sounds so unhealthy it makes me want to starve myself for a week. What about some homemade potato wedges? Chop up some potatoes to the right shape/size and sprinkle some herbs on top. Paprika's good if you like things a bit spicy.

This sounds delicious! I had fried bananas as part of a vegetarian breakfast years ago and it was really tasty. I'm no longer a vegetarian and black pudding is one of my favourite things, so the two together sound great. In fact, I was looking at a recipe yesterday that was black pudding stuffed pork with roasted rhubarb. My mum gave me a ton of fresh rhubarb that I need to use up.
Just be nice to me.

Meat stuffed with blood with random roast fruit. Sounds great :) No really it does.

Yes, rhubarb would go VERY well with some meat - that is a great idea. A rhubarb sauce for some beef would probably be really, really nice.

I like mini Cheddars dipped in Marmite.

This is going to sound, well, a bit weird but peanut butter, salami and cheese slice sandwiches are bloody brilliant. Really.

It's a strange and wonderful combination of textures and tastes.

When I was living in the middle of bloody nowhere, we used ot make occasional trips into the city. We'd fantasize about what food we were going to get hold of, and the ultimate fantasy became a samosa dipped in peanut butter. I never had one though.

I received two presents yesterday: Fair Trade Organic Chocolate with Bacon Bits and Fair Trade Organice Chocolate with Cheese, Walnuts and Grapes. Proper mature, smelly cheese, too. They were made by an Austrian firm, Zotter. I really wasn't sure about them.

How were they? I could definitely imagine chocolate with cheese, walnuts and grapes. Not sure about bacon bits though.

Maybe I'll revisit as I didn't eat it all. The bacon was subtle (ingredients read 'pork crackling'); the cheese was not really subtle. Both were loaded with booze, which cut through the, er cheesiness/baconness a bit. Available in Bristol somewhere... I could ask where if anyone's desperate.

One day, when I was like 9, I put Nutella, cheese, skagenröra and butter on a bread. Yeah... Can't say I didn't puke afterwards.


Also a good unusual food combination that I accidentally discovered, is chips with chocolate. Tasted great in a weird way
