Cooks&Books&Recipes Editors’ Notes:
I love corn. I know that’s the title of this cookbook, but it’s also a statement of fact for me: I love corn. When I was growing up, it was the only vegetable I would touch, and my love hasn’t lessened over time. What I like about this beautifully photographed cookbook is that Lisa Skye has collected recipes from world-renowned chefs, who introduce their recipes with anecdotes. The recipes are divided into Breakfast (Sweet Corn Waffles, anyone?), Soups, Starters, Mains, Sides, and even Sweets (yes, Cornbread Streusel!). Sad to say, I’ve never eaten creamed corn that didn’t come from a can, so I can’t wait to make Creamed Sweet Corn with Cornbread Crumbs. (Of note: the author is donating a portion of the proceeds from this cookbook to the Dougy Center, a national grieving center for children and families going through the loss of a loved one.)
