Comfort Food Week is making a timely arrival just as the autumn air takes on a bit of a nip. These chilly days go hand-in-hand with steaming pots of bean soup, savory mashed potatoes and gravy and creamy macaroni and cheese – all the stuff that’s good for the soul – and some area restaurants are ready to ladle out that taste-of-home goodness for you. To start exploring their latest warming comfort creations, find the passport in this issue of Illinois Times. You will want to take it along with you as you visit the restaurants where you can get it stamped for a chance to win prizes. Then, share your experience with us on social media. Finally, after at least three participating restaurants have stamped your passport, turn it in at any of the restaurants or at our office at 1240 S. Sixth St. So, do some planning. You have a busy week ahead. 217foodweek.com.
