Meet Foodpairing


Which foods taste good together is an art — and now a science. The team at Foodpairing has created a machine learning program called the “Inspire Tool” to figure out, using aroma, which foods “match.” It’s these complex aroma patterns within food that contribute to taste. For example, strawberries and chocolate pair well  because they have similar roasted aromas that complement each other. Although this program is currently fairly basic, one day soon a robot may be picking your side dishes and wine.
