Playing With Your Tastes

By Alia | In Rest Day | on March 10, 2013

      No, don’t actually stick your tongue out and play with it, gross. Play with complimentary tastes in your food. I am by no means a professional chef. I’ve been lucky enough to have encountered several happy accidents while cooking and combining food and spices. In the world of art, a complimentary color is directly opposite another on a color wheel and provides the greatest chromatic contrast to it. Like red to green and purple to yellow. Imagine that but with food.

      There are of course a ton of foods and spices out there to play with. One of my favorite spring/summer dishes is a good example of complementary foods. Roasted rosemary chicken . . . wait for it . . with lime! I know. I was shocked when I first had it. Lime and rosemary? *wince* Turns out it’s pretty fantastic. Another of my favorite simple complimentary dishes was introduced to me by Avelyne. Watermelon, Cucumber, thinly sliced red onion salad. Toss it with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Donezo. So simple and great for picnics.

      Point is, don’t feel confined to a specific food combination or herb combination. Get out there and try combining and experimenting!

Happy birthday, Laura!!

    I remember writing your birthday post a year ago and taking about how you only joined for your wedding, but we were happy you came back. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that you stayed the whole year! The intrepid family is lucky to have such a thoughtful and supportive member! Happy birthday to a wonderful teammate, cheerleader, and friend!!
