Rick Rodgers — award-winning cookbook author, cooking teacher, food writer, and radio and TV chef — has published yet another cookbook to add to his collection of 30 plus publications. Comfort Food (2012 Weldon Owen) is a welcome addition for fall and winter. No matter what your idea of the ultimate comfort food is, you will discover it in this enticing collection of over 125 recipes of North American favourites. For Rodgers, comfort food is all about nostalgic indulgences shared with family and friends. From a fresh bean casserole to fluffy coconut cupcakes (pictured above), try these dishes at Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any night of the week.
