We asked the Reader’s Digest community to tell us their all-time favourite comfort foods – the kinds of dishes that evoke memories of childhood, satisfy a craving or simply make the world feel like a better place. You’ll be amazed by some of the responses… and may just get a few crazy ideas to try yourself.
Dipping a strip of dark chocolate in a mug of hot coffee. Stirring it, then sucking off a layer of oozy lava. I can enjoy the flavour and texture for longer. It feels so decadent but really is such a simple pleasure. I just forget about everything else. – Paul Westbrook
Marshmallows! Marvellous marshmallows! To me, there’s nothing more comforting than a soft, fluffy, almost cloud-like mallow. – Kerrie Tullipan
3. Fresh bread
Freshly baked bread smothered in butter. It makes the whole house smell wonderful and it’s so fluffy, yet crusty and warm… like a hug! – Simon Buttfield
