For us in the Midwest, it’s the time of year to settle in for the long winter and seek out those warm, doughy and broth-y dishes to get you through the winter.
“Soups, stews, or something that just kind of coats your throat,” Tostada Magazine Founder Serena Maria Daniels says. “Or some of the meatier dishes. [They] kind of distract you from the cold.”
Comfort food is “something that warms your stomach and reminds you of home.” - Grace Reyes, Tostada Magazine
The food journalism website recently released a diverse, must-see list of Metro Detroit’s ultimate comfort foods.
Tostada‘s Grace Reyes traveled to Saint Clair Shores, Windsor, Southwest Detroit and further in search of the region’s best cold-weather dishes.
Reyes says, for her, comfort food is “filling, where it kind of tastes like the holiday season. Something that warms your stomach and reminds you of home.”
