SP Corn Chowder (post #62654)

Lately I have been doing most of my cooking from Fine Cooking but for some reason this past week-end, I pulled out my copy of the New Basics and started thumbing through.  I settled on the corn chowder and made it for my family.  I know opinion on that book and its recipes is divided, but my family loved that soup.  And it was just as good as left-overs the following night.  I don't know if anyone else here has tried it but I'd be interested in hearing if others liked it.  I love the Roasted Winter Squash soup from that cookbook as well.

The squash soup is one of our favorites, but I've never tried the corn chowder.  I made corn soup from the Chez Panisse cookbook all summer.  No cream, yet very creamy, and it tastes like pure, liquid sweet corn.

Thanks for responding.  I have the Chez Pannisse cookbook and I'll give that recipe a try -- I have been a bit intimidated about trying to cook from that book although I couldn't tell you why.

I love that corn chowder. SP also did a carrot soup that was delish, but I don't think it was in the New Basics.

And pizza pot pie! I think they are both in the original cookbook. Ironic, isn't it, that was once "gourmet" has become comfort food?

Thanks so much for the tip on the carrot soup and pizza pot pie -- I actually have all three cookbooks but only ever really use the New Basics.  I make the split pea soup very often in the winter -- even when my kids were very small they loved it and asked to have "green soup again tonight" -- and my Italian mother-in-law always requests the minestrone from the New Basics when she comes to visit.
