Food holds an important place in most cultures. We remember holidays at grandma's house with great fondness. The number of homemade comfort foods that smelled, looked and tasted so good. People would gather around a couple of large tables; pass the food around and share stories and conversations. That idyllic scene doesn't happen that much in many parts of US.
