Baby it’s Cold Outside! What’s Your Favorite Cold Weather Food?

Oh the weather outside is frightful! The downside? Threadless HQ is frozen in the midwestern Arctic circle formerly known as ‘Chicago’ (time for Threadless snowshoes?) The upside? The cold season means eating all the hardy, warm foods for a little human hibernation! 

To get some warm noms inspiration, we asked our artists (those caught in freezing temps like us and the lucky ducks closer to the equator alike) about their favorite food to eat when the temperature starts to plummet. Check out their answers below!

“Nekozushi” by MarsCG

When it’s cold outside I love to indulge in a big bowl of hot fat & spicy ramen. Plus a soft boiled egg on top. And cats (!?)

“The Broccozilla” by Ilustrata

Well, we live in Brazil and cold days are rare. But when this happens, there’s nothing better then a lentil soup with calabrese. Maybe I love this recipe so much ’cause my mom make the best lentil soup ever.

“Worst Case Scenario, A Bear Kills You” by Fox Shiver

There is only one ultimate winter food for me – an apple pie, heavy on cinnamon, served hot.

“Your Mind’s Eye” by blue sparrow

We’re in the middle of a heatwave at the moment over here in Australia so I’ll have to use my imagination. But I would say hot apple pie. Preferably accompanied by coffee while sitting beside the fireplace in a cabin in the mountains.

“Om nom nom!” by Philipp Rietz

Omnomnom…not so easy…I would say the traditional typical food for Christmas (in Germany) is cool for the whole cold season, and I really like stuff like ‘Christstollen and ‘Lebkuchen’ with a good warm cup of earl grey. Also something normal (more international) like a great amount of warm pancakes with caramel sauce awwwhhh… omNomNOm!
