About This Quiz
There are two ways you can eat food in life--eat to live or live to eat. When you have the option to eat whatever you like whenever you like, then you get to explore some of the more delightful and intense options the culinary world has to offer. You can match up flavors to contrast and compliment one another and create entirely new taste experiences. It's pretty awesome. After all, who doesn't love some classic food pairings like a burger and fries? Ham and eggs? Tomato and basil? Chicken and waffles? There's nearly an endless list of pairs you can make that will take any one of the lone ingredients to delicious new heights as part of a pair. In a way, it's kind of like any relationship. On your own, you're pretty awesome, but when you find the right person to be your partner in life, the two of you are just so much better. You work well together, you support and push each other to bigger and better things. In a way, you become the PB to that person's J, if it's the right person.
