Corn. Tomatoes. NOW.


As the sweet late season corn comes and soon goes, and September’s best tomatoes ripen, now is the ideal moment to enjoy local produce at its peak. Pictured here is a relatively simple salad I make (‘relatively’ because you have to boil a few ingredients briefly) that brings corn and tomato together with local fingerling potatoes, string beans, red onion, arugula and crispy bacon. Dressed with a simple vinaigrette of one-part red wine vinegar to two or three parts olive oil (do not forget salt!) and served with a little baguette, perhaps a spot of chilled Rosé, it is the perfect remembrance of the glory of summertime.
