The pairing probably all started when maple syrup overflowed from waffles onto bacon, but it developed into doughnuts, cupcakes, cookies, and everything delicious.

5. Intermediate: Egg and Coconut

Creme brûlée, coconut macaroons, tropical scrambled eggs, curry — all three meals, delicious all the time.

8. Intermediate: Basil and Cloves

The herb and the spice both share a chemical called eugenol, so some chefs add ground cloves to their pesto to enhance basil flavors.

9. Advanced: Melon and Chili

A pairing so vibrant, you can find it on Mexican street corners as no more than a bag of diced melons covered in chili powder.

11. Advanced: Dark Chocolate and Parmesan

Cheese and chocolate sounds crazy, but just make a grilled cheese with these flavors once, and you'll be hooked on that salty, sweet umami.

Pineapple and vanilla are a great dessert combo, but even better in a cocktail.
