East Hampton Corn Pudding
This recipe is adapted from The Neighborhood House Cookbook, compiled by East Hampton’s Women’s Service Club, a “small group of ladies still carrying on the tradition of old-fashioned, home-cooked covered dish suppers”. See the East Hampton Corn Pudding recipe
The key to making this Mexican street-food and market-vendor snack is to char the corn on the grill and then brush it with mayonnaise so that the cheese, cilantro, and chile powder adhere to the kernels.
Sweet Corn Chowder
Sweet, ripe summer corn makes for a richly satisfying chowder. When fresh corn isn’t in season use thawed frozen corn, and add a pinch of sugar to the pot. See the recipe for Sweet Corn Chowder
Layers of sweet corn pastry cream alternate with an herb-infused blueberry compote and a buttery shortbread crumble in a summery spin on the classic trifle. Any other berry at its peak makes a delicious substitution; try layering the ingredients into mason jars for an easy-to-transport picnic dessert. See the recipe for Sweet Corn and Blueberry Trifles »
