Tuna salad and bananas. Hear me out: I once ordered a fruit salad (with cottage cheese) plate and because I don't like cottage cheese they substituted it with tuna salad. During the course of my meal a bit of tuna salad got on a banana slice and I found the combination to be surprisingly good. I wouldn't make tuna salad with chopped bananas mixed in but a bit of tuna salad on banana slices (like crackers) are pretty tasty!

A judicious addition of either baking chocolate or prunes will make a much richer, more aromatic beef stew. The chocolate melts, of course, but I use a scissors to mince the prunes so that no one suspects them. I've also had a surprisingly good baklava flavored with cumin: it combines really well with the honey and walnuts.

And much older, I'm sure, R98. Ancient Greeks mention figs and honey, and cave paintings in Spain from 8000 years ago show honey foragers.

[quote]The origin of the common fig is debated. Some believe it to be indigenous to Western Asia and then spread by human activity throughout the Mediterranean.[2] Despite uncertainty about its geographic origins, [bold]most archaeobotanists agree that the domestication of the fig tree occurred around 6500 years ago in the Near East. Scholars agree that the domestication of the fig tree came long before the domestication of other fruit crops like grapes, olives, and dates.[/bold]

[quote]Researchers have found significant evidence of fig cultivation at many different late Neolithic and Neolithic sites along with Bronze Age, Assyrian, and Egyptian sites. But [bold]evidence for the first cultivation of figs has been found in the Lower Jordan Valley in an early Neolithic village known as Gilgal. This evidence dates back to the 12th millennium BP and suggests that the widespread cultivation of figs pre-dated the domestication of cereal crops by almost one thousand years[/bold]

R102: I stayed in a holiday apartment one above a Korean restaurant once. The smell did not arrive to the flat but the entrance and stair for the apartments put me off the idea of Korean restaurants forever I think.

Stinky foods with strong tastes combined with less(?) stinky foods with contrasting taste don't work for me: I'm thinking of all of the mentions above of stinky cheeses paired with something nicer, yes it improves the experience but only because it lessens the intensity of the stinky cheese. No amount of honey will improve upon kimchi.
