There are those recipes where you look at the ingredient list and first ask “Excuse me?” Believes. “Components like this never go together!”

I recently came across something like this: a chicken and banana casserole. Unfortunately, my fears came true:

But what about combinations like Hörnli with cider, which seem completely ridiculous to non-Swiss? Perhaps astonishment should be given some priority over skepticism, I suggest here. Before forming an opinion, try it out first, okay?

I’ve made the latter for you for the following dishes: I’ve cooked, tried, and found everything to be good.

So here are four recipes with ingredient combinations that sound pretty weird, but unexpectedly turn out to be great. I started with:

Spaghetti con Marmite

small cooking utensils, the original British spread made with yeast extract, which has long become a metaphor in everyday language: “I’m a Marmite person” meaning something like “You either love me or hate me.” There’s nothing in between. Is that supposed to go with pasta? And how! All of us Nigella Lawson Discover this recipe in the memoirs of a great Italian food historian and sociologist Anna Del Conte again.


(for 4 people)

  • 400 grams of spaghetti
  • 50 gm butter
  • 2 teaspoons Marmite (or more to taste)
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  • Cook the spaghetti according to package directions in plenty of salted water.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large, flat skillet over low heat, add the marmite and 1 tablespoon of the pasta water and mix well.
  • Pull the spaghetti straight from the saucepan into the bowl of butter and marmite and mix everything well. Add a little more pasta water if needed. Served with plenty of grated Parmesan cheese.

Ramen noodles with cheese and hot

This is just one of the many instant ramen hacks gaining popularity on TikTok… which would be a bad assumption, right? And the fact that they use industrial hamburger cheese — the kind that is individually wrapped in individual slices — is more than a deterrent. But I have to say: people, this recipe is medicine! classic guilt pleasure! Which is why it is now an integral part of my recipe repertoire.


(for one person)

  • 1 teaspoon sesame
  • 1 packet of instant ramen
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons of cream
  • 1-2 slices cheddar cheese hamburger, melted cheeseIs mandatory Use cheddar cheese! Completely avoid the other types!)
  • A few dashes of Sriracha
  • 1-2 pieces of nori snacks (crunchy seaweed)


  • Toast the sesame seeds briefly in a covered skillet or in a skillet until they get some color. Put aside.
  • Cook the instant ramen, including the contents of the bag, according to the instructions on the package.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a covered skillet or skillet over low heat. Add cream, cheese slices, and sriracha.
  • Drain the ramen over a small soup bowl (the broth is eaten separately as a soup), add to the skillet of cream and cheese and mix well.
  • Place in a small bowl and sprinkle with toasted sesame and crumbled nori snacks. Eat soup separately.

Pork Nigella in Coca-Cola

Once again, we let the somewhat eccentric, and somewhat indulgent Nigella Lawson at times tell her: “Only those who have never tried it are struck by the idea. Do not hesitate, do not be afraid: it really works.” In fact, this authentic Southern dish is amazing—like the Sunday roast, for example.


(for about 8 people)

  • 2 kg moderately cooked pork with skin (it would be nice on the bone)
  • 1 onion, peeled and halved
  • 2 liters Coca-Cola (Not light or zero)
  • a bunch of cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tablespoon Coleman mustard powder
  • 2 tablespoons fine brown sugar


  • Take the pork out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. Put the pork in a saucepan with the shell side down, add the onions and pour over the Coca-Cola. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer – two and a half hours. If the roast pork is larger or smaller, we count 1 hour per kilo (it will go into the oven for a little while after that).
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 240°C.
  • When it’s cooking time, remove the pork from the pan and let it cool slightly to make it easier to handle. Remove the peel/skin with a sharp knife until a thin layer of fat remains. Cut the fat in the shape of a diamond with a knife and attach each diamond to a clove. Carefully spread the molasses over the surface (make sure the cloves don’t disintegrate). Gently dab the mustard and sugar over the sticky fat. Roast in an aluminum foil pan for 10 minutes, until the glaze is glossy and bubbling.
  • The broth left over from cooking in the pan is ideal as a base for black bean soup or something similar.
