This dish has a spot on Heidi's Thanksgiving every year. It's simple to make, absolutely delicious and pairs well with one of her favourite wines - En Famille Reserve Chardonnay!
Cut the bacon into fine Lardon - sauté to render the fat. Sauté the shallot in the bacon fat and butter until translucent. Add garlic and sauté with shallot after shallot softens. Add thyme.
Boil sweet corn until cooked (about 5 min). Cool and take off the cob.
Sauté corn with the bacon shallot mixture for 5 min to warm. Add more butter if necessary.
Add heavy cream to cover or to desired consistency. Do not boil the cream or it will split. Re-season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add zest of one lemon and finely chopped chives or green onion to finish.
Célébration de la Vie was created in memory of our friend, collaborator and prolific artist, Dale Nigel Gobel, as a celebration of his life and works. Dale created JoieFarm’s labels and graphics for 19 years, including the original Joie logo doodle in 2001. His ‘look and feel’ has permeated the spirit of JoieFarm for two decades strong and this special wine was inspired by him and intended to celebrate springtime and the renewal that comes with this hopeful season.
