“Comfort food is the foundation of memories. When things are bad, a good meal shared with loved ones may provide a lifetime of peace and warmth.”
The appeal of comfort food stems from its potential to transport us to happier and more familiar times. It conjures up images of home-cooked meals, family get-togethers, and holiday traditions. Especially during tough or stressful times, comfort food has a way of helping us feel good and delivering a sense of warmth and stability. The scents and textures of comfort food are extremely delicious, giving one a feeling of indulgence and pleasure.
