3. Foodvention

When you’re really feeling the vibe and decide to mix flavor combos that you don’t even know if they taste good or not, but like, why not try it, right? Life’s too short.

Foodventions can be any combination of actions to mix together foods that haven’t been made before or at the very least, haven’t been popularized.
