Inspiration: Interesting flavor pairings

Thanks to my lovely new book The Flavour Thesaurus I am inspired. Expect pictures of these pairing experiments in the near future. Feel free to comment recipes or additional pairings of your own. 

Interesting pairings I'd like to try:

Goat cheese or Greek yogurt +
  • coriander
  • pear (with either a chardonnay or manzanilla sherry wine pairing)
  • watermelon 
  • watercress
Mushroom + Blue Cheese
       > polenta with gorgonzola and blue cheese
          > mushroom, blue cheese, and leek soup

Mushroom + Egg
          > mushroom fritters

Watermelon +
  • chili (this will be some type of confection)
  • cinnamon
  • coriander leaf (possibly a salsa-- red onion, fresh green chili's etc.)
  • cucumber + feta cheese
  • oyster
  • pork
  • tomato
