The day after phō I got down to business and made this. OMG it was so good. Almost like gravy bread, a childhood favorite, although this bread was little upscaled from what we had as kids.
When I think of comfort food my go-to is this sort of thing (or possibly turkey stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, definitely gravy has some involvement). His go-to is some sort of yellow curry-rice-y thing. He didn’t even taste this. When I asked him if he wanted some he looked at me like I’d asked if he wanted to share my anchovies.
My food stylist did not wipe up the edge of the bowl I see.
