The Meaning of Food

Comfort Foods

Marcus Samuelsson
Host, “The Meaning of Food” and chef, Aquavit, New York, NY

“My favorite comfort food changes depending on climate, on occasion, and whom I am with; for example, if I am skiing I would love a hot Austrian goulash soup, on the beach a fresh fish burger would be perfect, and when I am home in Sweden I love the meatballs with mashed potatoes. What affiliates the three is dishes are that are unpretentious, rich in flavor and you feel good making it and eating it.”
