As the cold weather sets in and signals the end of an unusually warm autumn, thoughts of many turn to human hibernation. Along with a warm fireplace, a well-worn couch and maybe your favourite blanket, winter is the perfect time to indulge in ‘comfort’ food.

A poll around the office found most comfort food emanates from childhood. The sausage-pasta-bake grandma used to make; crumbed lamb cutlets served with mashed potatoes; homemade sausage rolls; ‘pommy-style’ curried sausages (made with Keen’s curry and sultanas); shepherd’s pie followed by creamy sago pudding and dark chocolate bullets; Indomie (Indonesian instant noodles); apple crumble with cream and ice cream; curried eggs on toast; ricotta panzerotti; and kue putu (rice flour cake filled with palm sugar and covered in coconut) are the dishes that warm the stomachs – and the hearts – of the communications team.

In a week dominated by sadness and tragedy, we could all do with a little comfort now and then. Do you have a go-to comfort food passed down through the generations? Let us know in the comments below.
