I made a really delicious fresh cream corn soup for restaurant service one time at school. I LOVE CORN - and if it's for pigs, I'm a lil piggy too !


Of course, in the UK, I had to get used to saying "maize" for corn. The word "corn" was used in a general sense to refer to grain crops, including wheat.


I love your blog and read each new entry. One thing, I think Nancy Oaks restaurant is 1 Michelin star. Still, 1 star is amazing. Thanks for you great blog. Keep up the good work.


Boulevard has 3 Michelin stars?! I never knew. It must have been before such an honor, the times I have eaten there. It certainly WAS delicious.

Ouch! What a blow to the american indians. Snotty little Pierre with his face in a bowl of snails. I betcha wanted to give him a big smack on the kisser (and I don't mean that in the slightest positive way!) :lol:

I hear you on the plastic-wrapped ears no the shelves...the ones I see look beyond 'tender kernels' stage. Fodder for pigs, I should say. heh heh


Oink. ^^ Corn is "jagung" in Bahasa Malaysia btw. Great stuff. For the pigs? Haha, food is food. ^^


This soup sounds delicious! Will make it when the fresh corn stands are selling in August in Minnesota!

Eric – you're right Boulevard only has 1 star, I heard that it had 3, and I think they deserve 3 too, but thanks for the correction.
Joan – I like cream of corn soup too, yum.
SAS - Ha! Very interesting. I do remember calling corn mais when I lived in London, but I didn't know corn was a reference for all grain.
Rowena – to some degree corn really is for pigs. It does fatten up and quick too! But, I just can't imagine summer without it. Oh well...more for the rest of us!
Foxy – Thanks for the translation and yes food IS food.
Eileen – August?!?! That's a long time to wait for fresh corn, but definitely put this recipe in your file, it's dee-lish.


FYI... As a past 4-Her, I can also point out that there is "feed corn" (what the piggies and moo-cows eat) and "eatin' corn" (I'm sure that's an official term) for folkses. The Euros have never really grown eatin' corn, so the only acquaintance they have is with the nasty feed type, which you really would NOT want on your dinner plate. Give me my fresh, tender, butter&sugar corn (the supersweet yellow & white eatin' corn) and a pot of boiling water, and I'm in heaven. Don't need no salt, butter, or nuthin'. Just don't get in my way!!!! Oh, man, now you got me salivating!

Ms. Glaze

SAS – Good point about the different types of corn. The thing that really gets me is when you drive towards Lyon there's corn fields for miles and none of it is for us. Ha-rumph! Btw, have you ever tasted red corn before? Dying to try it.


Ha ha! Absolutely right on the pre-packed saran wrapped stuff. I haven't been able to bring myself to buy it yet. I took the old-fashioned route last year and planted some in my garden. If it ever stops raining here I may try it again.


Red corn? Other than various multi-colored popcorn (no, not the chemically dyed stuff!), haven't seen this. But since I'm in the oh so trendy Pacific Northwest, maybe I'll hit a few farmers' markets and see if anyone has it coming this summer.


When my mother was in boarding school in Scotland she said one of the special treats that the girls would get shipped into them was a can of American sweet corn. They would eat it for dessert. So I have a sentimental appreciation for the canned variety. Tho nothing beats fresh in season.


This makes me laugh. Whenever I eat corn Fred remarks eet eez food fit only to feed ze animals.


I just made this soup & it really does celebrate the essence of sweet corn. I especially loved the corn stock & its depth of flavor & my dogs loved the corn mash left over after running the soup through a chinois. Thanks to you & the ladies behind Boulevard!

Never was proud. Because a proud, you will be in should agree to the occasion stubborn; Because a proud, you will refuse the advice and friendship help, Because a proud, you will lose objective standard.

Yum, corn soup! This is one of the delicious soups I've tasted! When my sister got her tooth extracted, our grandma made her this one. In the end, I was the one who got all the soup! Hahaha!
