I followed some crumbs from MattBites, last week, over to the weekly food blog event, Food Fest. Food Fest is co-hosted by Margaret of A Way to Garden and Deb over at Dinner Tonight. Each week they pick a vegetable that is in season and we the readers and chefs get to create something to eat! This weeks challenge was corn.
We don’t eat a lot of corn around our house, even though, summer white corn has got to be the best! Sweet, succulent, you don’t even need to cook it! I chose a Donna Hay recipe, for Corn Cakes; which, I did change around a bit – no bacon, I added some whole kernels to give it texture and I did not fry until thoroughly cooked thru, I baked them rest of the way. I thought it would go nicely with the Black Cod that I was going to coat with crushed Fresh Garam Masala and then slow roast. Guess what, it did!!!
Verdict – the Corn Cakes rocked! Sweet but not dessert sweet, more savory sweet due to the onions and cheddar cheese, not to heavy, rather light. A great compliment to the spicy Garam Masala crusted cod, which was a lot more spicy than I thought it would be. The Corn Cakes actually cooled down the heat.
Lenny – he LOVED them, keep looking for the extras that I hid for lunch!
