I’ve been called all sorts of things when it comes too food. Usually, it’s derisive stuff like “snob,” or “ponce” and to some extent, it’s true. I do appreciate the finer Epicurean things in life. When I’m feeling down, or I’ve had a bad day though, nothing quite cheers me up like a simple home-cooked meal; comfort food.

And when it comes to simple comfort food, there’s nothing for that hits home quite like Mac and Cheese. It’s been that way for forever; when I was a wee lad, my mum made a stellar one, and thankfully, the wife makes a great mac ‘n cheese too.

Whenever I make the stuff, I tend to overcomplicate things; a bit of mascarpone, sage to meld with the cream and a fontina or taleggio cheese but all I’m really doing is ruining the simplicity and beauty of it. Really, all it needs is a cheddar cheese sauce, the pasta, fried onions and not-really-optionally, bacon. Cover it up with a thick layer of cheese to crust up under the grill and you’ve got a winner.

Whenever I want to kick things, Mac and cheese brings me home. What’s your comfort food? What nosh makes you feel better?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
