FP20: Comfort Food

11 Sep 2006, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in podcast

In the days following September 11, 2001, I learned more about the power of food to comfort than I thought possible. As a volunteer at the James Beard House following the attacks, I witnessed the nurturing balm that a hot meal could provide for many a weary spirit.

    i just wanted to say how much i enjoyed your show. thank you for sharing your story about your experience from 9/11. i, personally, was having a little sob session going on…so kudos to you for keeping it together! i don’t know how you did it!

    i’ve been a fan of yours since you were doing your segment on mark’s show. and i have to say that i’m also a HUGE fan of cardamom. every time you talk about it, i know EXACTLY what you mean! its just the greatest! you must love the indian dessert called “kulfi”. my personal favorite is pistachio flavored.
    well, keep doing what you’re doing because in the resounding words of “Sally O’Malley”: i love it! i love it! i love it!

    cheers! xo diane
