Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Potato Corn Vichyssoise

Vichyssoise sounds fancy but in reality it’s just cold potato soup, and a great way to take advantage of the local harvest this time of year.   While you simmer your cubed potatoes in salted water sauté some leeks, scallions, or shallots, in a little butter or oil.  Then cut your corn from the cob and add to the sauté, after five minutes or so add three cups of chicken stock and bring to a boil, turn down and simmer until your veggies are tender.  Your potatoes should be tender at this point, drain and add them to the veggies, season with salt and pepper, and blend until smooth.  Chill for at least a few hours and before serving stir in some sour cream or heavy cream, and garnish with some scallions and, or, some fresh corn.
