Christmas Desserts and the Perfect Comfort Foods

When you say "comfort foods" thoughts of mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, roast turkey and other American "classics" are often conjured up. But not me. The foods that help me achieve an improved level of emotional well-being must not only be tasty, but visually delicious as well.

Food and interior stylist, Paul Lowe, creates my idea of true comfort foods; luscious combinations of rich, fresh ingredients presented and photographed like the still life paintings of the Dutch Masters. For many of Paul's photo shoots, he not only does all of the food styling and props, but creates the recipes. Not only that, but he has a food blog, Sweet Paul. What a guy.

Colin Cooke photographed Paul's Christmas Desserts for the European magazine, Interior Magasinet. The food is so sensuous it just begs you to take a bite. Sweet Paul, indeed.
