When society breaks my heart, I subconsciously crave the comfort foods that connect me to my history and heritage. The older I get, the more the foods my grandparents fed me as a child mean to me.
It's a rough time in the world. Hope you are finding ways to cope and comfort where you can.
[4-panel comic of a frayed-looking woman with a braid, remembering foods she ate as a child. Panel 2 is a flashback of a young girl with bowl-cut hair, peeking at a table full of Chinese foods, like dumplings, turnip cake, rice bowls, and steamed bao. In panel 3, she opens wide for a dumpling being fed to her with chopsticks. Back to present day in panel 4. Woman with a braid sits in front of a laptop. The text of the comic reads, "When society breaks my heart, I subconsciously crave comfort foods...that my family made for me as a kid...and it soothes a part of me...to watch the hell out of Asian cooking channels on YouTube."]
I love the autobiographical elements which appear in your strip from time to time. Your drawing chops have never been better, and this strip shows them off as well.
Since my second-ever Kdrama about 5 years ago (Miracle We Met), I began to search for Korean food videos on Youtube because I wanter to make jjajangmyeon. I am now addicted to both the videos and the food! One Meal a Day and Korean Home Cooking are my favourite comfort food sources. Their recipes are simple, always work and they're delicious. There is no chatter, they never even show their faces. The videos are short, to the point, and easy to follow.
