I’m happy to announce that Martin from Khymos.org [1] has asked me to host the 4th round of the foodblogging event ‘They Go Really Well Together [2]‘. TGRWT is all about combining ingredients people might consider out of the ordinary. But the combinations are not just randomly chosen. The theory behind this is that ingredients with similar volatile aroma compounds should go really well together. But this is just theory. We want to test this by trying them out in dishes, and you can participate!

Get some inspiration, more information or get overexcited and take a look at the challenging pairs of the last few rounds.

TGRWT #1 [2] hosted by Martin [3] coffee, chocolate & garlic (round-up [4])
TGRWT #2 [5] hosted by Tara [6] banana & parsley (round-up [7])
TGRWT #3 [8] hosted by Evelin [9] strawberry & coriander (round-up [10])

So are you up for the challenge? The pair of this round is:

mint & mustard

A powerfull combination which hopefully will lead to some interesting dishes. Still interested?

This is how you can participate in TGRWT #4:

1. Prepare a dish that combines mint and mustard. You can use any type of mint or mustard. You can either use an existing recipe (if there is any) or come up with your own.

2. Take a picture of the dish and write an entry in your blog by August 1st with TGRWT #4 in the title. Readers will be particularily interested in how the flavour pairing worked out, so make an attempt at describing the succession of taste and aroma and whether you liked it or not.

3. A round-up will be posted here (with pictures). Please send me an email to info (at) kookjegek (dot) nl with the following details: Your name, URL of blog, URL of the TGRWT #4 post and a picture for your entry in the round-up. If you don’t have a blog, email me your name, location, recipe and a brief description of how it worked out and I’ll be glad to include it in the final round-up.

Good luck with this combination!
