Getting Comfortable With Jason Alley

We could just kiss the editors of Food & Wine Magazine smack on the mouth for featuring Chef Jason Alley's fabulous comfort cuisine in the July issue. Jason almost did last week when he cooked for a couple of F&W folks at the James Beard House. Instead, he sent them home with a belly full of, well, pork belly, and some pickled watermelon rinds.

"I got my barbecue fix with a perfect vinegar-spiked pulled-pork sandwich at Jason Alley’s five-year-old Comfort. At press time, a spin-off was about to open in Portsmouth, an hour outside the city (725 High St.; 757-393-3322).
