Who needs greens? Corn, the sunniest vegetable in the food pyramid, is stepping up to the plate. Author Lisa Skye presents the most delicious corn recipes from around the globe in I Love Corn (Andrews McMeel Publishing, $19.99, June 2012), turning this simple family staple into an irresistible ingredient for every dish.
I Love Corn includes recipes from world-renowned chefs including Daniel Boulud, Pichet Ong, and Dan Barber, as well as other culinary luminaries such as Martha Stewart. I Love Corn divides the dishes by section: breakfast, soups and starters, mains, and sweets. The chefs introduce each recipe with an anecdote, adding a personal touch to each flavor-filled dish. This diverse collection of recipes includes traditional favorites, such as Yankee Corn Bread or Sweet Corn and Clam Chowder, and unconventional ones, such as Fresh Corn Ice Cream or Poached Peaches and Rhubarb With Warm Corn Shortcakes.
Cheerful full-color photos of scrumptious foods light up I Love Corn with each turn of the page. Lisa also presents helpful information about corn, from how to choose the best ears in the store to freezing for the winter. Her love of corn led her to meticulously test each recipe, making sure they were easy to prepare for the home cook but still retain top-chef taste.
After going through the sudden and tragic loss of her father in 2004, Skye decided that she wanted to give back in a way that showed how thankful she was for the friends who supported her during that rough time. A portion of the proceeds for I Love Corn will be donated to the Dougy Center in Portland, OR, a national grieving center for children and families going through the loss of a loved one.
