So many of us have strong feelings about food. The question is: "Why is food so emotional?" The smell, taste and texture of food can stir up childhood memories, events and even specific feel-good emotions. Food is the link that connects complete strangers together because cooking for and feeding someone is one of the sweetest gestures in the world.
