Backstory

There is literally nothing that you can't put truffle on these days. Truffle gives everything an extra sharpness that you never knew you needed. Corn is so sweet and flavorful that when paired with the saltiness of the truffle, it's heaven. I enjoy dipping the corn fritter into the soup as just a small preview of what's to come for the rest of the meal.

  • Corn Truffle Soup:
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 shallots, minced or 1 large sweet white onion, diced
