Wine Food Pairing and Sweet Corn "Porn" !

Wine food pairing knows all about food porn .... WIKI says that Food porn is a sarcastic term variously applied to a spectacular visual presentation of cooking ....... well sweet corn porn is what I just took part in .... and let me tell you, it left me more that satisfied!

Our good friends Aunt Patti and Brewski Bob, our snow bird neighbors down in Florida and part time residents up in Illinois "over nighted" some delicious sweet corn to us straight from their fields. They spent a great deal of time packing with styro material, cardboard and cold packs and the corn arrived like it had just been plucked from the stalk!


Now we have heard all about the cultivation, planting, tending and spraying of the crop this past couple of months and we have even started calling Brewski, "Corn-Cob-Bob" .... well, let me tell you ... all kidding aside this is some mighty darn good tasting sweet corn. In fact, I don't know when I have had something quite so fresh and delicious .... we followed Brewski .... er .... Corn-Cob's instructions on grilling and then dressing out the ears with mayo, grated Parmesan and cayenne pepper and I swear, it brought tears to our eyes!

OH MY! Words just can't describe the absolute freshness .... We ate at a frenzied pace ... that's all we had .... and we paired it with a crisp, chilled Pinot Grigio ... Santa Margarita .... yes, it is the "good" beans at $25 a bottle, but let's face it .... the best deserves the best!

Yes, this picture shows the "remains" of our wine and food ... it wasn't pretty, but oh well.

The good news is there are 4 more ears left and those will be for dinner ... LOL!

Wine food pairing
can sometimes be a tough job, but someone has to do it. CHEERS!

Comments from Carol and Jim to Brewski Bob:

Well, well,...this is THE BEST CORN I have ever eaten, so there, post office, put this where the corn don't grow. I don't know where I have been all my life, but I'm sure glad I have lived long enough to experience the BIG C by Bob.

Maybe you have found a new career.


We had to take a nap after lunch to dream about it! And, thank you for all your effort in sending all that goodness to us.

Love Carol

Bob,

Amen to Carol's note!!!


It was COLD when we opened it! The funny thing was that Denise was on our front entry 5 seconds after the Post Lady arrived. The Post Lady had lots of "corny" advice.


Denise came in for a Pinot while Carol opened your TLC package.


With corny thoughts of you,


Jim
