Looks like the spice/food pairings I've been writing down since I started cooking! I would add just one thing (for real life cooking, not for the game): mint goes well with cucumber-based cold soups and most cold berry-based soups. My grandmother used to make the most amazing green pea-cucumber soup with mint. Tasted great on a hot summer day!

Chives are also a perfect pairing for potato wedges.

Thanks for this.

The chives an guacamole is probably a typo.

They didn´t come up as a perfect pairing for me, or chives with the stuffed jalapenos.

Hey, thanks for this great and much helpful list. I try to find at least one spice on my own before peeking and looking for other matches... lol
I don't know if you can edit it or what but the one I actually found and used so far for Pierogies is Chives, so it also works. Nice to know about the other two.
I also really like you wrote it by dish and not by spice - good thing for those of us who still looking for a bit of a challenge there... Thanks again

Huge thanks to Projecteast for this list, although I've also found some that don't match too. My game didn't like chives in the guacamole or enchiladas or pico de gayo, but it did like chives on potato wedges & pierogies.

Something not on the list, my game had a perfect pairing for Peppercorn on Sausage Patties.

This list is great although at least one wasn't a perfect match when I tried it, no big deal!

Thanks for the list some don't work as perfect pairing but the majority do and that is what counts . I thought there was only one spice for each dish now I know better . This list has really helped me. No more wasting spices
