Make comfort food for cold days, whether it's a herby toad in the hole with lashings of gravy, an oozing wild mushroom and spinach lasagne or a rich spaghetti carbonara recipe, made the proper way with eggs and plenty of parmesan.
There's nothing like steaming hot comfort food to sooth you and it's worth taking the time over, especially when it's raining outside. With this in mind, we've featured some slow cooked comfort food, like Lorraine Pascale's Asian pulled pork recipe, which takes care of itself in a slow cooker, alongside everyone's favourites, like the ultimate macaroni cheese.
First up, this classic alpine tartiflette recipe
is wickedly addictive! Serve it with a bitter green salad, pickled onions and plenty of crusty French bread for an Alpine treat.
