Heston Blumenthal (*** The Fat Duck) “There is a whole new world of new flavour combinations out there”

Sergio Herman (*** Oud Sluis) "At Oud Sluis we look for inspiration at artists, designers, architects,... Foodpairing is a valuable tool because it confirms combinations we intuitively feel."

Gert De Mangeleer (*** Hertog Jan) "Foodpairing is creating a platform of opportunities to support the original taste of culinary products.”

Where can I find his app?

The app is for the moment only available for iPad. You can find the Foodpairing App on iTunes here.

What can I do with this app?

The app on iPad will look like this, visualizing the interactive Foodpairing tree inspiring you in making new tasteful combinations and a combo box to store your combinations;

The app will contain about 100 ingredients which can be explored from apple to chicken, pumpkin to chocolate, different types of vodka to local apple vinegar. The same login gives access to the tool on PC, iPad. Paying members will have access to 1000 ingredients.

The app is available in English only for the moment.

Each ingredient will be visualized into a Foodpairing tree, like this one of caviar:


In the middle you have the selected product. All around you have ingredients you can combine, clustered into categories like meat, dairy,…

In the iPad app, the Foodpairing trees will be interactive, you can click on the categories to have info or to unfold them and see more pairings.

So if you want to make a dish like Noma e.g. with potato. You can find the inspiration in our Foodpairing trees; and create a potato-plum-cream dessert or a totally new combination.
