Honoring the Zucchini

It’s that time of year again when the garden begins to produce in earnest. In the midst of that magnificent bounty, I’m afraid that zucchini sometimes gets a bad rap. Stories abound about bags of squash being left in unlocked cars or on doorsteps. Nationwide, zucchini festivals feature newly crowned Zucchini Queens and Kings and games of zucchini toss. I’ve even seen tongue-in-cheek recipes for what to do with this prolific squash like Zucchini Stuffed with Girl Scout cookies!

Cajun Corn Maque Choux

IMG_0201

Maque Choux – pronounced “mock shoe” – is a traditional southern side dish commonly found in Louisiana thought to be a blend of Cajun and American Indian cooking. Maque choux is often served as a side but may easily be transformed into a main dish by adding some shrimp, crawfish, cubed chicken, tasso(spicy ham), andouille sausage, tofu or whatever strikes you. You’ll see variations including the use of tomatoes, celery, chicken stock, bacon, jalapenos as well as different herb and spice combinations.

Corn Chowder

During the winter, when you need to brighten things up, this soup tastes like summer.  The corn is SOOO sweet.  For this recipe I used Salumi’s Slab Bacon because I’m a bit obsessed with its flavor  Vermont Smoke & Cure would be just as delicious.  I tasted the soup before I added the cream and thought it was fantastic.  The cream obviously adds a lovely richness but also slightly dulls the flavor of the corn.  The next time I make it I may just omit the cream altogether.
