Recipe Notes

Corn is the perfect foundation for almost any combination of flavors. It is both sweet and a bit savory (especially when roasted). As such, when combined with almost any spice you get a great blend of flavors.

"Millions of American women, and some men, commit that outrage every summer day. They are turning a superb treat into mere provender. Shucked and boiled in water, sweet corn is edible and nutritious; roasted in the husk in the hottest possible oven for forty minutes, shucked at the table, and buttered and salted, nothing else, it is ambrosia. No chef's ingenuity and imagination have ever created a finer dish."
