tag: creamed corn
August 21, 2012
I found real corn at the Bastille market. Non-shrink-wrapped corn, still in husks, clearly picked that day because it was as sweet as I remember summer corn being in California. Hallelujah!
The first couple of ears, I ate raw, straight off the cob. My colleagues used to make fun of me for doing things like that when I had an office job. The rest, I made into simple soup, or this scalloped corn. The corn’s creaminess heightened by béchamel sauce, its crunchiness heightened by bread crumbs, this was a perfect summer side dish.
