On today’s show, we explore research on food pairing and flavor networks.
Earth Eats Associate Producer Alex Chambers walks us through the work of Dr. Yong-Yeol Ahn,(he goes by YY). Dr. Ahn is a professor of informatics and computing at Indiana University and co-creator of a fascinating map of flavor networks.
Anthropologists Maddie Chera and Leigh Bush talk with him about what these networks can, and cannot tell us about cultural food pairing preferences.
