Food combines with each other when they have major flavour components in common.  
A list was made of 250 food products each with their major flavour components. By comparing the flavour of each food product...with the rest of the food and their flavours, new combinations...can be made. The way to use [it], is just to select a food product like strawberries. You will get a plot where you have strawberry in the middle surrounded by other food products. Take one of those other food products and try to make a new recipe by combining those two. The more flavours food products have in common the shorter the distance between the food products...  
This is just a tool to inspire you. You still need as a chef the craftsmanship, the translate this inspiration into a good recipe...
With recipes.
