Comfort Food - Comfortable for who?

LNU Design BFA Thesis project, 2020

An Exploration of Genuine Comfort Food Through Design. As an attempt to further explore the action of cooking as design practice with the goal to change mindsets and behaviours around consuming animals, I wanted to question the concept of comfort food.

What is genuine comfort food? Can comfort food be comfortable for more than human beings? Is there a way to overcome our somewhat selfish, conventional eating habits by maintaining an element of comfort while designing alternative eating experiences?
