Thick and creamy soup prepared with fresh local ears of young sweet corn, celery, carrots and young coconut water topped with diced cherry tomatoes and Italian parsley with a sprinkle of fresh crushed black pepper. Its natural sweet taste and creamy-chewy texture is just like the one of a country corn soup. Gabrielle was finishing work a little early today, and so I thought I should get something special ready for her. For inspiration I went to a the local farmers’ market to see what was happening. And there they were, smiling at me! A little early in the season a farmer was beaming with his young sweet corn. Perfect!
When I surprised her with this lovely creamy and refreshing soup, decorated with a corn flower (the purple flower) she said these words: “Purple and yellow, my favorite colors. Corn is such a treat but where did you find these treats so early in the season ?” “It’s a secret”, I replied.

For the Soup:
2 cups fresh sweet corn kernels
