I thought you’d all like this. It’s all words, but patterned in a beautiful and useful way. It shows what foods go well with what other foods, organizing them in large categories (e.g., root vegetables) and raying out from specific examples (e.g. beets) to show what flavors go well with them. Very cute! Someone could have fun doing a version with images. Link: http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/taste-buds/

It’s the work of David McCandless, who has done a wonderful book visualizing all kinds of data – and creating understandability. THe link lets you look at many of his data visualizations if you check them out.

Here is a link to his TED talk:
