On my way to work today I I realized that I hadn’t seen the sun in close to 48 hours. I think most of us could agree that when this time of the year comes around, there is nothing better than a comforting homecooked meal. However, the idea of comfort food is often equated with rich, food-coma inducing meals that we had when we were children. Comfort food doesn’t have to be just that. With the evolution of our local markets, we now have access to so many fresh ingredients (ingredients of the seasons). We should now be able to make meals we weren’t so used to eating at home when we were kids. Meals that we often associate with expensive nights outs, can now be new homecooked memories that years from now pop into our heads on those first few dreary days of November… This butternut squash risotto is a perfect example of that.
