Food is one of the best things life has to offer. It's a delicious and important part of people's lives and cultures.
Food allows us to be creative, it makes us explore and discover new things, and develop a bond with people and places with love.
Food not only brings people together, it also has the power to make us feel better. Is there a better remedy than your mom's chicken soup when you're sick? Nope.
And if you've left home, you know that food has an ability to connect you to your roots.
So what makes you feel less homesick? Maybe it's a great restaurant where you always order take out from.
Perhaps it's a dish that's harder to find where you currently live, but totally worth the adventure.
Or maybe it's something you cook yourself, following a recipe that's been passed down to you.
So tell us, what do you like to eat when you're feeling homesick, and why does it make you feel instantly better? Be as detailed as you can: tell us where it's from, the name of the dish, the name of the restaurant where you can find it, or who you got the recipe from.
