This article - "Kerouac Was a Comfort-Food Freak" - reminded me of the many entries in The Beat Handbook (Days 1, 17, 19, 24, 52, 54, and 57) about "the beat diet," which, of course, I culled from The Dharma Bums and On The Road. I've written about food on a number of occasions here on The Daily Beat as well. For example, the beat diet. Or Slumgullion and Slumgullion.
The beat diet is all about comfort food. Now . . . where did I put that box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese?
