In the below "nature vs nurture" thread about cooking skills & talent, one poster referred to a book about flavor pairings, ie lamb and rosemary.

I'd been thinking the other day about flavor combinations that go way beyond the sum of the parts, elevating good ingredients to the sublime. Since it's a slow day at the office, I'd like to know what some of you feel are truly inspiring combinations. (Anyone remember the old Reese's commercial: 2 Great Tastes that Taste Great Together!)

At the top of my list is hot chiles with Thai basil. The basil turns intense heat that I could not handle straight up, into addictive fruity joy...
