Comfort Food Recipes
Comfort foods are familiar, simple foods that are usually home-cooked or eaten at informal restaurants. They are foods that are often emotionally significant to a person or group of people and are sometimes related to pleasant memories of childhood.
Comfort food is typically inexpensive, uncomplicated, and easy to prepare. Many people eat comfort food because it is generally easily digestible, is tasty and flavourful, or as a way to reward oneself.
The term "comfort food" was added to the Webster's Dictionary in 1972.
Types of comfort foods: Various foods or snacks could fill the urge for a comfort food depending on a person's taste, but in any given culture or cuisine there are foods that become widely accepted comfort foods. Individuals may also vary: upbringing, memories & traumas, situations (solo or any specific types of group settings, perhaps influenced by the food marketers). Biologically each has varying sensitivity to taste, crunch, fats, sugars, fluid, colour and presentation.
