One of the many beauties of cooking is the ingredients that we use. Utilising good quality, seasonal produce will ensure that you get the best possible result in the kitchen and help your recipes to reach their full flavour potential.
What is even more fascinating about food is the ability that simple ingredients have to come together in perfect harmony. Take pear and dark chocolate or butter and sage. These flavour combinations balance each other out in acidity, sweetness and texture to create a fantastic base for cooking.
As a home cook, once you understand simple flavour combinations – there are no limits to what you can create in the kitchen. Pears are just one the ingredients that we love to experiment with as the subtle sweetness lends itself so well to other strong flavours.
