TASTE BUDS of Complementary Flavours
I recently ran across this taste bud visualization and thought I would share it with you.
"A visualization of complementary flavours by David McCandless and Willow Tyrer. All food tastes amazing, just sometimes not together. So we roved around 1000 recipes for common flavour patterns and visualized the results. A good way to build a meal, maybe, if you lack a chef’s intuitive buds. Less data visualization, more dinner visualization. An infoodgraphic, perhaps. Ok, we’ll stop now. These were created for the Information Is Beautiful book. Willow, a swedish infographic designer, came up with an elegant, organic style. We thought it might be nice to release them into the wild."
