fish & jam, toast & chips?

Been looking at food pairings. Certain combinations have just become tradition and habit. There's no right or wrong, really, just what's familiar. I say fish, you say chips. I say strawberries you say cream. Or maybe you don't, but generally speaking certain foods are linked with others.

So I thought I'd try and challenge ideas. I made this little flip-book thing, where you can mix and match foods to make new combinations. Some, naturally, seem a little odd (I don't think I'll be trying strawberries and mashed potato any time soon), but others could be amazing gastronomic experiences waiting to happen. Just because jam doesn't come to mind when you say bacon dosen't mean it would be wrong. Just unfamiliar.
