Comfort Eating: What We Eat When Nobody's Looking: Signed Edition (Hardback)Grace Dent (author)
Mining the psychology behind comfort eating in accessible and always entertaining prose, the columnist, broadcaster and author of Hungry explores the emotional meaning of the foods we turn to behind closed doors through heartwarming personal tales from some of her famous friends.
Have you ever wondered why eating cheese can sometimes feel like a cuddle? Or how a good curry can be just what we need after a tough day? Oh, and just what is it about butter that makes us feel so at ease?
The foods we turn to behind closed doors are deeply personal, steeped in nostalgia and topped with a healthy dollop of guilty pleasure. Comfort Eating finds Grace Dent inviting readers to her kitchen table to discover what makes the things we really eat so delicious.
As she explores her go-to comfort foods through a series of joyous encounters, she catches up with famous friends to discover their secret snacks - from Jo Brand's fried bread sandwich and Russel T Davies butter pepper rice to Scarlett Moffat's crushed Wotsits-topped beans on toast and many, many more.
So grab a plate and pull up a chair: unfussy, honest and filled to the brim with heartwarming personal stories and comfort food tales, Comfort Eating is the perfect treat for food lovers everywhere.
