    No hang on thats a brand of pickle, is it epiquer, gastro gnome? oh bother it, a person with refined taste, i think i am one, only a person with refind taste can put two ingredients together and make them sing, i have found that combining a pepperoni pizza with (very lazy chilies), (a chef type thing), is a taste to die for, and so cheap, if one of the fast food outlets wants to buy
    my secret it is on offer for 1 million quid.

    I have one too. Take a very hot Thai chilli pepper, and crush it in a small bowl of soy sauce. Now sprinkle that soy sauce over chunks of fresh pineapple. You have never tasted a combination of flavors such as that.

    Is this new? Nope. I didn't invent it. It is a common way to enjoy fresh pineapples in South East Asia. It is similar in the "clash" of tastes as the Italian version of drizzling aged Balsamic vinegar over fresh mellons.

    Good one wooly. I've been putting crushed red chilis and pickled jalapenos on my pizzas for years, but will get myself a jar of Very Lazy and see what happens!

    The cheque for the mill is in the post.

    1.fry some pork sausage meat
    2. remove ("reserve") the sausage meat & saute diced apples in some of the fat left over + some butter, add cinnamon
    3. add apple juice or apple cider & cook it down by 1/2
    4. put sausage meat back in with sour cream & sage
    5. fill crepes with sausage meat & diced apple mix

    :biggrin:

    the sweet/savoury usually confuses people :tongue:

    And by the way, spread the lazy chili under the pepperoni, as it tends to burn if on top.

    What exactly is a "lazy chili"?

    I heard a story on the radio about combining seemingly incompatible foods together to obtain a new taste.

    If you're good at chemistry and good at music, you can look at the chemical composition of different foods, see which chemicals form a common "chord", and have a pretty good idea that the two flavors will wind up producing a very interesting and palatable combination. The speaker said it was very similar to harmonizing several tracks into one piece of music.

    Sweet & meat = not good to eat.

    I have never liked a sweet taste with meat. The closest I'll get is the orange sesame chicken at the local grocery store's chinese section. It's not really sweet, so it's tolerable.

    I thought the same as you until I went to Epcot with Zz and I was introduced to Moroccan food. There was an item containing meat inside a pastry that was sprinkled with powdered sugar and cinnamon. It sounded pretty weird, but I gave it a taste (I had a sampler platter, so if I didn't like that, I had plenty of other things to nibble on the plate)...I was really surprised by how well it all worked together. Very tasty. :approve: (Not at all like that hideous concoction of sugary glaze people put on their ham that I know you don't like either.)

    I don't know what very lazy chilies are either, but have always sprinkled hot pepper on my pizza for as long as I can remember eating pizza, so it sounds reasonable to me.

    The dish that Moonbie mentioned about was called "pastila". It's a savory meat filling wraped with a crispy pastry dough, and then sprinkled on the outside with powdered sugar and cinnamon. It is VERY good!

    The Moroccan restaurant near where I live also has that dish, but they don't sprinkle it with sugar and cinnamon! :(

    Humm.. that means you also do not like Japanese teriyaki?

    I've had friends from Turkey who also find it strange to their palate to taste "sweet" meat dishes. Luckily, during the time they were living here, I managed to get them to try more than enough that they finally got used to it.

    Teriyaki is fine. It's the overpowering sweet sauces that I don't like. I like spicy, hot, savory, but not sweet.

    I make this Thai green curry with beef that is hot and spicy enough to make your hair curl!

    Is she also bringing a DVD player with the food so that you can watch the DVD I sent you while you eat?

    I still have no DVD player. :-( Which is rather pathetic because I can get a free one from work.
