I don't know about you but I own so many cookbooks that sit on my shelf gathering dust, they look pretty, sound tasty but do we ever cook anything from them.....No! This book is workable, usable, understandable, realistic and overall a great book for all tastes and occasions. I commit the ultimate sin and write in my books so I know if I have cooked something how it turned out. I have tried and tested many of the dishes from this book and not a single one has turned out less than 100% satisfying. It really does do what it says on the tin. The beef casserole is just like my nan used to make, the millionaires shortbread is mouthwateringly scrumptious, and the creamy leek bake is one of the most delicious and tasty veggie dishes I have ever eaten!! Buy this book and you could virtually kiss goodbye to most of your others.

i must be honest, i do like to induldge myself with good food, that looks good, tastes good and makes me feel good! This book has it all!

I am not one of these people that believe that others are truely influenced by the title of a book, and think that people eat unhealty of their own choice. (unlike the below comment, who seems to really hate this book because of its title). Never judge a book by its cover!

This book is just page after page of excellent recipes. I dont think there is one I dont like. The recipes are all pretty simple to make - unlike a lot of recipe books around.
If youre looking for a book with good, easy, fairly traditional recipes this is the one.

I myself can't comment on this book, but the person I bought it for thought it was a very good book with some very good recipes.

I feel very disappointed about the title of this book, which I saw on the shelves in a local book shop.

So what you may wonder is so wrong with this book you may ask?? Well the sentence 'comfort food is the culinary equivalent to a hug' in the intro absolutely horrified me and made me wonder how many publishers attribute to one of the most unhealthy habits that many people indulge in. As someone who loves food, but also realises the wrong ways in which many people use food - for comfort, to replace affection and to raise low self esteem - I find the myth of 'comfort' food and 'comfort' eating one of the most unpalatable terms in common use today, 'comfort eating' should be dropped from all of our vocabularies for good.

There is - as any counsellor who helps people address behaviours in order to promote healthy eating and positive eating behaviours - a really strong link between the idea that food can make you happy and can become a main habit in addictive eating. I find this book title and the promotion of 'comfort' eating extremely irresponsible, and old fashioned. Are we still living in a time when we actually believe that food will replace our emotional needs?? Comfort eating is generally about using food to avoid confronting something, or to fill some emotional void in a person's life that they cannot seem to cope with in a more constructive manner. It is also a habit that can turn into a very subconscious and destructive habit. So why promote it?? Why continue the myth that eating for comfort is good?? Mothers (and fathers) teach their children habits around food, and not only damage their own health with behaviours like 'comfort' eating but also teach children (often without realising it) to do exactly the same - you are just adding to this with these sort of books.
