It’s been a little hectic since I got back from France just over 2 weeks ago. I had a few quiet days to myself then last weekend I headed off across the country as a guest of Via Rail on The Canadian (more about this soon but you can check out my iPhone pictures from along the way here!). So I was thankful for an EASY “non recipe” French Fridays with Dorie recipe this week (Boulevard Raspail corn on the cob, p 336).
Dorie suggests roasting the corn in the oven still in their husks but hey, when it’s summer….
We left these on for about 30-40 minutes at 400˚F (if you can trust the thermometer on our BBQ)…
Honestly, the revelation of this week was how easy they are to shuck when they are hot. I might never boil corn again….
We ate these slathered with butter and sprinkled them with fleur de sel mixed with piment d’espelette.
A quick shoutout here to Teresa (@onewetfoot) who I had the pleasure of meeting in Vancouver yesterday on my 36 hour visit . We chose Beaucoup Bakery as our meeting spot and enjoyed some treats we think Dorie surely would approve of 😉
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs (though this week, you can find the recipe online here), we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself then join us here!
