5 Delish Flavour Combos You've Never Tried

It’s easy to feel like you’re stuck in a food rut - sticking to familiar, reliable combos like cheese and tomato or apple and cinnamon. With spring fruit and vegetables pouring into our local greengrocers though, we’ve been inspired to seek out some off-the-wall flavour combinations to get your creative juices flowing!

Blueberry x Coriander

We’re beginning to see good, locally grown blueberries come into stores - but have you ever tried them combined with coriander seed? Coriander seeds contain linanool which tastes woody and citrusy, and is used when creating “fake blueberry”, so the two play well off each other.

We’re loving the idea of curing our own salmon with this Blueberry Coriander Salmon Gravlaxor adding coriander seeds to these Blueberry muffins.

Pineapple x Strawberry

For Hawaiian pizza lovers (and we know it’s contentious) - cheese and pineapple are an obvious winning combination.

For those less convinced, let us change your mind with these Caramelised Pineapple Quesadillas with Spicy Strawberry Salsa. They combineSpring pineapplewith aged white cheese (we suggest subbing in Havarti or Gouda for Monterey Jack) for the ultimate crispy-stretchy-juicy-(easy!) dinner.

Goat milk x Caramel

We’re calling it: goat milk caramel is the new salted caramel (which is still pretty darn delicious!). Goat milk has a natural tanginess that cuts perfectly through the the sweetness of caramels. Get some fresh goat milk now and make some Goat Milk Caramel with Sea Salt yourself!

Avocado x Chocolate

If you’re feeling a little more virtuous, why not try an Avocado Chocolate Mousse - you’ll be shocked by how much luxurious richness the avocado lends the dish- especially as they’re perfectly ripe at this time of year! Plus, bonus points for Organic, Fair Trade Cacao Powder.

Strawberry x Capsicum

We’ve been really feeling for strawberry farmers in the last month - so we were excited when we came across the pairing of sweet strawberry and spicy raw capsicum. This Strawberry Gazpacho is a tasty twist on a traditional entree to kick off your spring dinner party.

Spring is the perfect time to try something new, so we hope we’ve inspired you to give something a go. If you have an interesting flavour combination you’re crazy about and think we should try, tag us on Instagram or Facebook.
