The Pantone Food Pairings by David Schwen are Complimentary

David Schwen takes the idea of color matching using Pantone paint samples and translates it into food pairings.

The ultimate classic food combos, such as peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies, ham and cheese, salt and pepper, are just some of the basic ingredients that always seem to go hand in hand. Of course, these foods are focused on what is considered to be the typical North American diet, and may not apply to other countries in the world.

Just like artists learn about the color wheel when figuring out which colors compliment each other in order to create an interesting visual impact, beginner cooks can use these food pairings as a guide for easy and simple meal suggestions.
