The transition from summer to fall can inspire amazing recipes. Sweet corn is usually considered a summer treat, but you can usually still find it at your local grocery stores at this time and it helps create amazing fall foods, like soups and chowders. This recipe comes from Executive Chef Justin Macy and is featured in Miraval's Sweet & Savory Cookbook.
"Roasting the corn over a gas flame or grill gives it a toasty flavor that, when paired with the chilies, gices this soup a nice Southwestern flavor. Even with the kernels removed, corncobs are loaded with sweet corn flavor, so I simmer one of them with the broth for a richer result."
SEPTEMBER RECIPE OF THE MONTH
This month's recipe Lemon-Glazed Blueberry Scones is featured in Miraval's Sweet & Savory Cookbook
Quick note from Chef Kim Macy
The key to tender scones is being gentle with the dough, which is why I suggest mixing the ingredients with your hands. Work the dough just until it holds together; more vigorous kneading will develop too much gluten in the four, which would make the texture heavy and tough.
