Creamy soups are not my thing. I'm not gonna lie. Despite my feelings, I decided to try out this recipe anyway. I figured with the weather starting to change here in New England, why not make a nice soup for a lunch at home?
At least I tried.
Alas, I did not like this soup very much. I am happy that I tried it out though - I adapted some smart tips that I'll use in future soup recipes. The fact that Dorie soaks the stripped corn cobs in the milk and lets it steep is pure genius. It really soaks up more of that "corny" flavor. Next time I'll try replicating that exact method in chicken broth perhaps. I love the idea of crunchy bites on top of the silky soup also. Bacon on anything steps a dish up a notch. I feel like this soup lacked something though - I just can't put my finger on it.
Take some time to visit French Fridays with Dorie to enjoy the other blogs about Corn Soup. If you want the full recipe, you know what to buy. Otherwise, you can find it on Epicurious.
