I'm wondering if there is some online resource that compiles different flavors and their combinations.

I'm imagining some site that I could search one tag or several, say "orange" and "cake", and then give me results for different things that have orange as a main flavor (some creamsicle cake) or as a secondary flavor component like in a carrot cake.

I know this is a bit confusing, but if there's anyway I can make this better, please don't hesitate to ask.

  • Have you tried googling "Flavor Combinations"?
