The best comfort food from around the world


No matter where you’re from, everyone loves home cooked meals and foods that take us back in time.  The wonderful aromas that would fill the room as a child or the first time you ate something truly intoxicating all have a profound impact on us.

As autumn arrives, leaves change colors, the nights grow longer, and there is a distinct chill in the air. If you are like me, you crave comfort foods even more.

Unfortunately, as we put away our skimpy summer bathing suits, most of us stop counting calories. Its more convenient to hide our tummies with baggy clothing.


Do you crave certain foods when you are sick, after a fight or after a breakup? Yeah me too!  Sickness is an unfortunate side effect of the cold weather.

Whether you’re into comfort eating, ethnic foods, southern food recipes or if you just enjoy making homemade food, this list is for you.  I’m sure you will find something you like from all of the best comfort foods from around the world.
