“To me food and laughter go hand and hand. Whether it’s feeding someone a comforting meal, or telling them a joke, the emotion that is evoked in someone when they experience one of those two things is one in the same. It’s that warm, soul satisfying inevitable happiness that I crave.
Laughter and food are like this universal language. It a form of acceptance, it’s an invitation, whatever barrier that was up before, gets knocked down as soon as the plate hits the table. “
