About this deal

It is all the things the title promises – delectable, delightful, delicious – and, to my taste, it’s at its best in those devastating slithers of grief and love which end each chapter. So grab a plate and pull up a chair: unfussy, honest and filled to the brim with heartwarming personal stories and comfort food tales, Comfort Eating is the perfect treat for food lovers everywhere. After treating Grace to a two-course surprise snack, Tamsin talks about growing up with an older dad, her.

Grace’s guest this week is Georgia Pritchett, the genius behind many of the shows we watch on the telly when we’ve whipped up our bowl of comforting goodness. I absolutely loved this book, essentially a love letter to all the foods we’re told we should feel guilty about eating - (white) bread, (white) pasta, butter, cheese, potatoes. But halfway through reading it, in the grips of a lung infection and the mournful last days of summer, I did find myself thinking about boiled eggs and Marmite toast in a way that felt almost metaphysical. Bringing lashings of comfort and joy to Grace’s house for the final episode of this season is the legendary jazz singer Gregory Porter.Sometimes we eat for pleasure, sometimes we eat for fuel, to feel better, out of boredom, because we’re sexually frustrated, sad, or any number of other reasons.

He tells Grace about growing up in a conservative religious household, being brought home by the police. It’s funny, laugh out loud, entertaining, humourous, inspirational, hilarious, illuminating, memorable, uplifting, soothing, reassuring, cheery and entertaining. They discuss attuning American tastebuds to British comfort foods, the joy of post-church fried chicken, and what to eat while wearing a dominatrix corset. The foods we turn to behind closed doors are deeply personal, steeped in nostalgia and topped with a healthy dollop of guilty pleasure.And as a throwaway how much money did she get for appearing on Get Me out of Here and then bottling it at the first challenge? The multi-Grammy award-winner, known for his smooth, silky tones and iconic headgear, is gliding in on a. She transported me back to my Teesside childhood with her culinary tales of comfort eating excellence that sparked so many memories.

Best known as the bumbling titular estate agent of Stath Lets Flats and long-toothed lover of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag, Jamie’s arrived fresh off the Barbie set armed with his favourite comfort snacks. It's a paean to lost times, when children went out to play all day, and school dinners nationwide seemed to feature chocolate slab with "mint sauce" (blancmange), among other things. Grace’s first fellow Cumbrian guest on Comfort Eating comes in the form of TV cook and hairy biker Dave Myers.She and Grace talk about big family dinners, motorcycle gangs, and eating habits during the menopause. In episode three of Comfort Eating with Grace Dent, Rafe joins Grace for a sit down over his favourite sofa snack.

Next over to Grace’s house is the former long jumper Greg Rutherford, who’s won gold medals at Olympic, world, European and Commonwealth level. I don't like cooking, and i am extremely fussy about food, so i was really unsure if i would enjoy this one, but i really did!

The Bake Off star, whose triumph in the tent launched a TV, writing and culinary career of which dreams are made, is dropping by Grace’s home to share her loves, her hates and her strategies for managing a house of teenagers. Jo Brand is next round for Comfort Eating, and she brings a snack with her that Grace ‘devours like a wild animal’. The book is a wonderfully scrumptious, life-affirming journey through the foods that really mean the most to us. Jon’s best known for going on adventures with unlikely people, culminating in hit books such as The Men Who Stare at Goats and The Psychopath Test.
