So, just what is comfort food? I guess that is slightly different for everyone, but for me comfort food represents a feeling of home, family and soul. Comfort food is the glue that holds a family together. I think the comfort part is a feeling of safety and security combined with good memories of the past. I believe the heart and soul of the family starts in the kitchen.
