As the warmth of summer ebbs slowly into colder, shorter days, we crave comfort foods. Old favourites like pumpkin soup, roasted vegetables, and beautifully seasoned meats.
And for good reason: they're delicious!
The comfort foods you're drawn to tend to mean more than just your tastebuds' predisposition to hot foods. They act as a touchstone to the past. They remind you of wonderful moments spent in your mums' kitchen, at your aunty's house, and at grandma's dinner table. The moment you taste an Apple, Blackberry & Rhubarb Crumble, you automatically compare it to your mum's. When you carve roast lamb, you hope you've done justice to your grandmother's recipe. When you know you have, you smile, beaming.
As you've read this, your mind is drifting to a particular recipe. One handed down through your family. What is it? Tell us!
