Project Description:
Holy Shallot is a versatile, browsable, online food pairings index. As the author explains: "I've named the project 'Holy Shallot' in honor of that amazing, but under-appreciated cousin of the onion."

The database is a Wikipedia-linked, cross-referenced index of 1047 food ingredients, basic sauces, flavors, ethnic cuisines -- with about 20000 specific associations. For instance, browsing to the entry on "sage" reveals strong pairings with the entries on "pork" and "bitter flavor" and "butternut squash".

Holy Shallot is an excellent resource for cooks and gourmands who are looking for inspiration on an edgy new dish, or a clever use of the ingredients around a kitchen.
