Description
Comfort food makes you feel good, makes you feel at home, and puts you in the frame of mind to curl up on a sofa, in front of a roaring fire, with family, with friends, with a great book. It's what you want when you come in from the cold or when you've got a cold, or when you want to enjoy a cozy evening with loved ones. Welcome's "The Little Big Book of Comfort Food" is crammed with over 200 family recipes. Collecting the best, basic, foolproof, simple-to-make recipes from real kitchens, from real friends and real families was Welcome's objective when publisher, Lena Tabori and her daughters, Senior Editor Katrina Fried and Managing Editor Natasha Tabori Fried, set out to make this book. In the belief that comfort food is, by its very nature, food that has passed down through generations, it seemed appropriate, not to mention charming, to illustrate these tried and true recipes with cozy vintage art.
