Our Best Maillard Comfort Food Recipes

According to the definition, comfort food is "food that provides emotional comfort to the one eating it, these tend to be favorite foods of childhood, or linked to a person, place or time with which the food has a positive association" (definition from Urban Dictionary). Many, like us, associate comfort food to grandma's recipes.

This is what we had in mind when we gathered some of our best comfort recipes. So, here we go; best grandma's recipes below, just in time for fall and winter! Enjoy, guys!

Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese Trio

Let's finish this list the best way possible; a good old mac 'n cheese recipe! This is certainly a big classic.
