Comfort food

“Comfort food is the things we loved as a kid, when we didn’t have to prove anything; we didn’t have to say we went to this 3-star Michelin restaurant and we figured out 3 of the 14 ingredients on the plate, aren’t we wonderful! This is accessible food that we don’t have to be taught to love. We want comfort food, but we want it done very, very well.”

Radio 4’s Food Programme is fully quotable this week, exploring the enduring appeal of comfort food.
