It's Vegetable Time

Although I hate the terribly hot kitchen this time of year, I love the constant stream of vegetables that are coming in now through frost. These vegetables never fail to inspire me to create something really beautiful from them.

Here's a case in point: a napoleon made from layers of fresh corn pancakes and sliced tomatoes, sitting on a bed of sautéed spinach, topped with a little mousse of herbed goat cheese. The pancakes are made from raw kernels of local bi-color corn, a bit of stone-ground blue corn meal, and flour.
