Food is magic, so it’s no wonder that I feel deeply, divinely alive and loved when The Chef cooks for me. His most recent culinary offering started like this:
CHEF LEIGHTON’S GRILLED CORNFUSION
- 5 OR 6 EARS OF CORN ON THE COB
- 1/2 OF A FRESH PINEAPPLE
- HABANERO SUGAR
- 6-8 THIN PATS OF BUTTER
- SRIRACHA SALT, TO TASTE
- DRIED CHILIES, TO TASTE
- GRILL THE EARS OF CORN USING YOUR PREFERRED METHOD. SLICE OFF THE KERNELS AND PLACE IN A MEDIUM BOWL.
- CUT THE PINEAPPLE INTO LARGE SLICES; RUB ONE SIDE OF EACH SLICE WITH A THIN LAYER OF HABANERO SUGAR. GRILL BOTH SIDES UNTIL SLIGHTLY BROWN. YOU CAN GRILL THE CORN AND THE PINEAPPLE AT THE SAME TIME. DICE THE PINEAPPLE AND ADD TO THE BOWL WITH THE CORN. STIR.
- ADD PATS OF BUTTER AND STIR WELL. ADD THE SALT AND CHILIES, TO TASTE, INCORPORATING FULLY.
It is slightly sweet, slightly spicy, and 100% marvelous! Kind of like a certain special someone I know…
“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”-George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
It was so good!
Delish! I’ve just eaten corn on the cob three days in a row.
It was quite delicious, indeed. ‘Tis the season for fresh corn, so I do not blame you at all.
My mouth is watering. How wonderful to have your own personal chef. And love, too.
It was really excellent! I am lucky in many ways, and The Chef is one of the main reasons why.
