Comfort Foods

Isn't it amazing how one bit of a favourite food can transport you back in time? For me, rice pudding or warm chocolate chunk cookies, and I'm gone.

Isn’t it amazing how one bite of a favourite food can transport you back in time? For me one spoonful of rice pudding or a warm chocolate chip cookie, and I’m sitting on a red vinyl chair in my mom’s kitchen circa 1960.

The animated Disney feature Ratatouille captures another such moment. A heartless food critic takes one forkful of the veggie stew and he is a child again in his mother’s farm kitchen, feeling loved as his jaded heart melts. Ah, the power of food.
