The Greatest Food Combinations

One of the best things to do in the kitchen is to try out different flavours and to discover new tastes that will excite and enhance your taste buds. Sometimes you can put two different ingredients together thinking ‘this will never work’ and you’ve ended up making a masterpiece. Some flavours are just classics together and you can’t have one without the other, so here are what we think are the top 10 greatest food combinations.


10. Beetroot and Orange

To many, this sounds like a shocking combination but there are so many recipes out there that use beetroot and orange together to make extremely refreshing meals. Like this beetroot orange & hazelnut salad which is a great one for the summer, so if you still want to hold onto the summer months why not try your hands at this salad?

Cheese and Crackers is a complete classic for after meals, snacks on a Saturday and at Christmas time. There is nothing simpler than getting a variety of crackers with a few different cheeses and presenting it on a board for your guests, however if you want to try and make your own crackers this Christmas, the Food Network has a great recipe for Thyme Crackers that go very well with goats cheese.

3. Pulled Pork and Coleslaw

There is nothing greater when having pulled pork to combine it with a dollop of coleslaw. Pulled pork takes little time to prepare but you must be patient with the cooking time in order to make the perfect pulled pork. The waiting time is definitely worth it especially if you team it with coleslaw and make a beautiful burger.

2. Chilli and Chocolate

There are little people who can truly say they that they don’t like chocolate. Chocolate is consumed all the time, whether it’s in a pudding as a mid-morning snack or a nice treat to munch on curled up on the sofa in the evenings. When chocolate is combined with the subtle hint of chilli, it brings an amazing kick to your favourite snack. Here is a recipe to make a delectable chocolate and chilli tart.

1. Eggs and Bacon

Our number one greatest food combination has to be eggs and bacon. No matter which way you cook your eggs and whether you prefer smoked or unsmoked bacon, this combination can do no wrong. You can have eggs and bacon for breakfast, lunch or dinner and they will still taste just as great. So instead of a classic fry up here is a recipe for our number one combination in a pie.
