Surprising Flavor Combinations

We know, these flavor combinations are weird, but don’t knock them till you try them!

Peanut & Meat

Fans of Thai food probably already know and love this flavor combination, but in case you haven’t tried it, peanut sauce is amazing with all kinds of meats. Satay (skewered grilled meat usually served with peanut sauce) is an awesome introduction to this unique mix of juicy, savory goodness with the distinct flavor of peanuts. Give it a try!

Fruit & Spice

Spiced fruits are extremely popular in Mexico and anywhere with a Mexican population, and for good reason. If you have never tried fruits with chili powder, you may not think this combination is appetizing, but trust us when we say that the fruity freshness mixed with the kick of spice from the chili is absolutely mindblowing. It’s also very easy to make at home as all you need is fresh fruit and chili powder.

Avocado & Chocolate

Avocado is traditionally associated with savory dishes, but did you know that it tastes amazing with chocolate? This is primarily because of its rich, creamy texture, which lends itself well to foods like chocolate cake or chocolate ice cream. Despite what you may think, the natural flavor of the avocado doesn’t overpower the chocolate at all. They work together in perfect harmony!

Cheese & Jam

Here in the USA, we often reserve cheese for either savory dishes or cream cheese, but we should really be eating it with jam more often. Soft, creamy cheeses like brie taste heavenly when piled on a crunchy cracker and topped with a flavorful jam. We recommend either regular fruit jams or the lesser known spicy chili jelly.

French Fries & Ice Cream

People who dip their french fries in their milkshakes at restaurants sometimes get weird looks, but we understand you. Many think that crunchy and salty fries would be gross when combined with sweet and creamy ice cream when they are actually an awesome combination, just like chocolate covered pretzels.

Dipping Sauces of the World

Every day, people all around the world with all different culinary backgrounds and tastes dip their food in a dipping sauce. Whether they’re dipping a potsticker, a pretzel, or pita bread, they dip them in one of the world’s many delicious dipping sauces. Let’s take a look at a few of these dipping sauces from around the globe!

Queso Fundido

It’s hard to resist a plate of nachos, especially when they come with this ultra-cheesy Queso Fundido from Mexico! It’s made with a variety of cheeses, chorizo, and fresh salsa. We’re getting hungry just thinking of the melty texture of the cheese with the crunch of the nacho chips and the burst of flavor from the chorizo. Try it out!

Baba Ghanouj

Don’t be afraid of the name! Baba Ghanouj is an amazing dipping sauce often served with pita bread as a starter in Middle Eastern cuisine. With tahini, eggplant, and herbs, this sauce is sure to be a flavorful and smooth companion to whatever you choose to dip in it!

Sweet Mustard

We know many of you have tried our Double Hi Chinese Mustard, but have you tried Bavarian Sweet Mustard? It’s more gentle and less pungent than its Chinese counterpart, but still packed full of flavor. Try using it as a dipping sauce for a juicy sausage or a soft baked pretzel!

Chermoula

Coming all the way from the Maghreb region of Africa, Chermoula is a simple but delectable dipping sauce comprised of lemon juice, oils, and herbs. This zesty sauce is often paired with meat dishes like kebabs, so we recommend trying it at your next summer BBQ. We think it will be a hit with your guests!

Ponzu Sauce

Here at WN Foods, we talk about Ponzu Sauce a lot, but it’s because we love it so much! We just can’t get tired of that savory soy sauce mixed with the tangy bit of yuzu. That combination creates a truly unique flavor for shabu shabu and gyoza. Yum!
