Serious Eats: Talk
That warm, fuzzy feelin'...
Food and Emotion. Sounds like a Gladys Knight hit, doesn't it? For me, food isn't comforting at all like it is for many people. Its something that brings out all kinds of emotions. Pancakes make me feel like I'm 5, again. Popsicles make me want to... erm... heh heh... you know... A peppered steak, rare, brings out the same feelings I get when I'm getting a deep tissue massage. Beef Stew brings tears to my eyes every single time like a cheesy chick flick.
What foods bring out emotions in you? Has it ever caught you by surprise? Is it something you'd expect to feel or something completely new?
