Just what’s so comforting about comfort foods? Foods like pasta dishes, stews, roasts, chili, BBQ, pizza and more conjure up deliciously good times with both friends and family.

Join Smithfield Culinary as we take a look at all the classics, some new takes on those old favorites, and some comfort foods with which you may not be that familiar, including on-trend and ethnic variations.

Smithfield Culinary has the products and insights perfect for enhancing all your comfort foods menu. For additional information, contact your Smithfield Culinary sales representative or call 888-327-6526.
