Everyone has their own favourite comfort food. It may be something as simple as thickly sliced hot toast, a tub of creamy ice cream or a fabulous rich chocolate dessert, but there's no denying the pleasure good food can bring. Truly comforting food is as enjoyable to prepare and cook as it is to eat. This book features fabulous ingredients such as aromatic frazzled pancetta with scrambled eggs sitting atop a croissant, or luscious hot fudge sauce poured over a warm brioche filled with ice cream. So, curl up on the sofa with a big bowl of rich, warming soup and tortilla chips, or delay the day's chores with some really dark, sticky gingerbread, and resist going to bed until the last of a freshly baked pudding is eaten. Whatever your mood, these recipes aim to provide scope and ideas for truly indulgent eating.
