This thread has made me remember the observation of a rule people have for no reason. So many times now I've heard:
"You know, I usually don't like fruit and meat together, but this is really delicious."
Heard from so many different people! Seriously, it's a popular one, and yet without fail it's uttered as the person is eating up a dish featuring the combo. I recently heard it again when we were tasting our new duck plate which features an apricot-orange purée.
