5 steps to comfort food

From choosing the right crockery to picking up enticing ingredients, Katy Beskow shares her top tips for enjoying the perfect comfort food experience…

Enjoy being in the kitchen

Even if you only have 15 minutes to spare. Pour yourself a glass of wine or brew a cup of tea and enjoy the mindful process of following a recipe and putting a delicious meal together, whether you are cooking for yourself or friends and family. Be spontaneous and adapt recipes to your own preferences, like adding a little extra chilli if you like more heat or switching one fresh ingredient for another – cooking is all about what is right for you. Cooking is also about having fun and being creative, so don’t take yourself too seriously!

Make yourself at home

Plate up your food onto your favourite crockery, whether it’s a plate you usually keep for special occasions, an old chipped bowl that reminds you of dinner at your gran’s house, or load it into lunch tubs to take on a picnic. Eating from your favourite plate or bowl always feels like home, as it’s familiar and comforting. Enjoy your comfort food somewhere you feel happy, whether it’s being curled up on the sofa or sat under the tree in the park; there are no rules.

Eat together

Eat together when you can and turn each meal into a catch-up, celebration or conversation. It feels great to cook up a feast for family and friends and have everyone help themselves to a selection of foods. Set up a table with fresh linens, perhaps some flowers and always plenty of serving spoons for guests to try out new dishes. Some of the happiest memories people have are when families get together and sit around the table to enjoy a meal. This isn’t exclusively for a special occasion or celebration, but simple, everyday mealtimes spent with immediate family. Eating like this creates memories and a positive, holistic attitude towards food.
