Almost too much excitement for one post!

so totally forgot to photograph the corn before diving into it...so here's a photo mid eating.

So something which was very exciting for me was I had a request from a blog reader for me to cook some Indian recipes.  Not to let my readers down I immediately ordered an Indian cookbook.  Something else very exciting happened the night before I made the recipe from the Indian cookbook, I was invited to help out in the kitchen during a Saturday night shift at F&B restaurant in Walkerville.  Full circle, the blog reader who made the request for Indian recipes, Jolie, was dining at F&B on the night I was in the kitchen.  Is your mind blown??

The recipe came from my brand new pretty cookbook

The recipe I tagged to make first didn’t really scream Indian food to me but sounded delicious so I decided to make it away…hopefully you aren’t disappointed Jolie!

The recipe tagged was for Corn on the Cob with Chili Garlic Butter (or sekeli makai anna marchu).

I first made the chili garlic butter.  I melted butter in a sauce pan over low heat.

Then I added crushed garlic cloves and minced chili peppers….or what I thought was a chili pepper but it was pretty mild so I also added a jalapeno from my garden to give the butter a bit more heat.  I let that cook in the butter for 5 minutes.

Then I removed the from the heat and set aside.

I placed my corn cobs (which had the husks removed and were at room temperature) on a hot grill and rotated each cob every 30 seconds until the corn started to char.

it's not really corn season yet so you can see these cobs are pretty small

I brushed with butter and cooked a bit longer.  Then I removed from the grill, brushed with more butter, squeezed a bit of lime juice and a sprinkle of flaked sea salt.

The Verdict:  So I thought this corn would be kind of basic, but it was great!  And others eating also really really enjoyed it.  This is one I will definitely make again once better corn is available.

Onto a bit about F&B…Chef John let me invade his kitchen to help out last Saturday night.  I had a blast and really learned a great deal in a small amount of time.  John runs a pretty low key kitchen (think opposite of Gordon Ramsey…like as opposite as you can possibly think).  It is really inspiring to see and to be a part of.

F&B will be debuting a new summer menu this week and I was lucky enough to try out one of the dishes John is considering adding.  I can’t wait to see (and eat!) the rest of the new dishes!

So thank you to John, Tom and the rest of the F&B family.

  1. It was a delicious meal that I had the pleasure of enjoying last (I was late to the party, lol) – with corn season upon us I look forward to tasting this recipe again – along with the new F&B menu! Thanks Rosemary!
