Three words: bacon and eggs.
Food is powerful, and I would argue that bacon and eggs is one of the most powerful dishes out there. It’s comfort food whose coziness-inducing qualities are very close to chocolate (but not equal because chocolate has no equal). When I woke up in my aunt’s house after surviving my first night there, I made bacon and eggs (with onion and cheese to make it even more awesome). The smell filled the house, acting as a sort of cleanse, casting out any unsettling feelings. To use a Harry Potter reference, the bacon and eggs acted as a Patronus.
It’s filling, healing food. Food you eat when you are hungry – physically, emotionally, and/or mentally. It’s more than comfort food; it’s soul food.
