Our founder Sharon Baker recently wrote about comfort foods in a column for the Rome News-Tribune. She writes:
Food is a complex experience. To experience food completely, we need to call upon all of our senses. We also need to be aware why we are eating, rather than mindless munching while watching TV. Picture a beautifully set table with flowers, candles and colorfully-plated food. Food served on a paper plate eaten while watching TV or inhaling fast food in wrappers while driving is an entirely different experience. I’m not saying meal settings need to be elaborate, but at least visually pleasing.
