The biggest feast of the year is just a few days away.
Of course, appearing in the starring role…
With a great supporting cast…
Lake Park Bistro restaurant, Milwaukee
When was the last time you went out to a restaurant to eat?
The time before that?
And what about before that?
Data suggests you don’t go out as much as you used to. You don’t because it’s not as affordable, and it’s easier to just stay home.
According to the NDP group, you eat out 74 times a year or once every five days. That might sound that it’s frequent, but it’s the lowest reading in more than 30 years.
Eating out is simply not all that appetizing.
That’s a rather large beer hall in Munich.
Pioneering food writer Mimi Sheraton’s German Cookbook just marked its 50th anniversary. This past week, Sheraton wrote a column in the Wall Street Journal that was prefaced by:
“In the beer halls of Munich, they’ve come up with a great antidote to anxiety: meaty, paprika-spiced goulash soup.” The headline calls the dish a “cure” that is “remarkably soothing.”
Then Sheraton writes, “I recognized that goulash was comfort food long before it comforted me.” She called goulash soup “restorative” and “appealing” with “sustaining powers” that “alleviate depression and nervous fear.”
Comfort food, indeed… food that is satisfying because it is prepared in a simple or traditional way and reminds you of home, family, or friends
